The Briars is a historic house in Natchez, Mississippi. The house was built in 1818 for Judge John Perkins, a large planter. It was designed by architect Levi Weeks. When his wife died in 1824, Perkins tried to sell the house, but he rented it to William Burr Howell, the son of New Jersey Governor Richard Howell, from 1828 to 1850 instead. Howell's daughter, Varina Howell, grew up at the house as a teenager; she later married Jefferson Davis and served as the First Lady of the Confederacy.
