First Presbyterian Church is a wealth of art, music, and history. From the historical design of the sanctuary to the display of photos of Natchez through the ages the church is a must see. The splendid organ has a marvelous sound!

The old photos are a real must see. They were found localy then restored from the original glass negatives. These are a great step in onto past history of the rien and its people. Best of all it only a donation to cet it.

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.
