Jackson Jambalaya presents Windsor Ruins as never seen before. Many pictures have been taken of the famous Mississippi landmark but none from above. JJ recently acquired a Yuneec Typhoon 500 drone with a 4k camera and made a video of the ruins as the first project. Photographer Rick Guy shot and edited the footage you see below. The video is best seen in high definition. Click on the wheel (settings) on the Youtube frame and select 720. We hope you enjoy this presentation of Windsor Ruins.

The Daniell family built a plantation home on the site of Windsor Ruins in 1861. The home faced the Mississippi River as the river back then came very close to the site. It was used as a hospital by Union troops during the Civil War. Only one black and white sketch exists of the completed home. It burned down in 1890 after someone dropped a cigar that caught fire. Only the columns and a few iron staircases remained. The Daniell family owned the estate and donated it to the state in 1974. Two of the remaining staircases disappeared and the family donated the remaining staircase to Alcorn State University.
