If you are in Natchez is appreciate the old town experience this is the location to start off with. This collection of photographs from the mid 1800's up through the early twenty century will provide a direct view of that life.
This is a beautiful church, which houses a collection of hundreds of restored Natchez photographs from about 1845 to 1910. The stunning photos reveal the people, places, fashions, and Mississippi River life during that era. They are wonderfully displayed in a museum-like setting upstairs at the back of the church.

The church houses a HUGE collection of photographs depicting the history of the Natchez area. They are well organized. You can spend a short time here or a very long time depending on how much you want to study the photographs and read all the captions. The church has a donation jar.

What a treasure for the city of Natchez!... 更多

We visited the church, as we had heard that they had a huge gallery of old vintage black and white photos taken pre Civil War.
