This church houses a photographic history of Natchez from the very early days and continues for 50 years.This exhibit covers 2 floors and several rooms. A must stop for anyone interested in either history or photography.

This big, shining white structure is one of the best looking churches in this part of the country. (I personally like it better than Natchez' heavily publicized St. Mary Basilica, although that is an apples and oranges comparison.) Some might consider First Presbyterian a drive-by attraction, but it’s definitely worth a visit, if only to photograph the exterior. A praiseworthy... More

The exhibit is outstanding. Full of wonderful photos and great descriptions. There is also a prayer room and the sanctuary is open to view and quite lovely. If you happen to Presbyterian (like me) or in the ministry you will especially enjoy one room dedicated to a former long time pastor, Rev. Stratton. His dedication to the congregation and town...

The church is very nice but the prize is the historical photo exhibit. It is amazing that all these "lost" negatives were found, restored and made available for public display. The photos are an excellent glimpse into the history of Natchez.

My wife and I enjoy visiting churches on our travels in addition to the usual attractions and Natchez has several that are of interest. Because of Natchez's history as a financial powerhouse of the early half of the 19th century, it has some exquisite churches that date from that period - they type that you would normally only find farther...

I believe this is a donation site, this is another place I donated on the way in and again on the way out. not only is there an unbelievable collection of historical natchez photos, but the building, in it's self is very interesting. if you like old historical photos you will enjoy this. I had missed it in the past,... More

A local resident recommended this permanent exhibit to us, and it was a highlight of our visit. A selection of professional photos lovingly researched, blown up, framed, and curated, from a trove of 75,000 pictures discovered by a local doctor. All are related to people, places, and history of Natchez. Loved the portraits of ladies in their finery, showing changing... More

the chapel always has a photography display that helps a visitor understand more about the history, culture, and people of the region. The explanations under each photo brings the picture to life. We have been to Natchez twice and each time visited the chapel to see the display. The first time we saw the pictures of the freemen and women... More
