Their exhibit of historic photos is incredible. The sanctuary is pretty much as it was during the early 1800's, just beautiful.

the old church was very pretty but the old photo display that is ongoing/shown there is so worth at least 30 min to 1 hour of your time. It would be an especially good stop on a hot afternoon. It's quiet inside and a church member is there to offer info.

Interesting history, friendly guide, and beautiful building. The historical photographs on display in other parts of the building are a true gem. What a treasure.

Lovely building considering when building started, large with free access throughout. There was also an impressive display of very early photographs of Natchez and the trade on the river. Well worth a visit.

The clarity on the photographs in the exhibition was incredible given how old they were. Well worth visiting and you could stroll round at your own pace

Many beautiful photos with text describing the photos and their significance... all telling the story of Natchez and its changes through the 100 years of photos. FYI -- enter through the State Street door.

It was hot and we were looking for something to do in Natchez and found this church on TripAdvisor. It is a great place to spend a hour or so. The photography is amazing. It's not just a lot of photos of old buildings and fuzzy images. There is an array of subject matter and the photographers are true artists.

Amazing collection of photos depicting history of Natchez. Beautiful sanctuary. Pleasant surprise when organist began practicing on the pipe organ Impromptu concert!
