This lovely church has a side entrance that houses a most unusual photo collection of Natchez. It is upstairs and wraps around many rooms. If you like history, this is a gem of a place you don't want to miss!

This is unlike any photo exhibit we have seen before. Hundreds of photographic portraits and scenes from old Natchez, enlarged, and there's something special about them - they have personality. The room of children's portraits is especially touching. Don't miss this.

The photography curated by the First Presbyterian Church is extraordinary. We should have allocated at least two hours for our visit, because there is much to see. Each image is remarkably clear and the details fascinating. (Check out the cutlery pyramids in the riverboat dining...More

We just happened upon this by accident. Really can’t describe how inspiring and sobering this exhibit is. Unlike the Natchez visitors center that makes a fumbling attempt to be politically correct, this exhibit lets the photographers lens capture the image and allows the viewer to...More

We confined our visit to the photo display of old Natchez- and spent much longer there than we thought we would. The pictures are somewhat grouped by categories. For instance, we all enjoyed the room with portraits of the children. You get a feel for...More

If you have time, this church has a fascinating (and surprisingly extensive) gallery of historic black-and-white photos of Natchez streets and people in the 19th and early 20th centuries. I liked seeing the paddle-boats' luxurious interiors, while my wife enjoyed the many portraits of women...More

The church itself is almost 200 yrs old which is neat to see. The collection of historic photos is very interesting. It includes photos of Natchez from the 1800s. Free to enter, all they ask for is a $5.00 donation to help maintain the property....More

The First Presbyterian Church’s sanctuary is very pretty, but somewhat "stark", having few adornments. The windows are plain glass, although some of the separate meeting rooms & offices have stained glass? The big draw here, however, is a very extensive collection and exhibition of old...More

I have visited this exhibit several times when I visit Natchez. It is free and you can spend 30 minutes or several hours. It is AWESOME! It is such a treasure to be able to see life in Natchez in photos taken from 1850s to...More
