Absolutely a must see; the photographs are truly art and a history lesson rolled into one. You'll see 100 years of history in almost 500 photographs. The Victorian and Edwardian fashions of the women are exquisite and the photographs of the children and pets are adorable. You'll also see some buildings and boats, so a comprehensive collection well-laid out. I... More

I was checking trip advisor for things to do after lunch. This church was close and the reviews were good. It is amazing! Photographs cover every wall. How cool to see the history and changes for the time period covered. Definitely suggest putting this on your list of "must see places" in Natchez. Allow plenty of time.

People had suggested we stop to see the photo collection & figured what the heck - spend 10 minute & be gone. Over 30 minutes later we had to leave to stay on schedule. Unbelievable photo collection.

The church houses a museum of Natchez pictures taken over a period of 43 years by a local photographer. Excellent history lesson on the people who lived in this area. Superb pictures.

This is a beautiful church with a lot of history. We learned about the historic photograph exhibit while on the carriage ride around the city. Donations are encouraged to help support this mission. Stop and see some of historic Natchez and make sure you step into the sanctuary. Not to be missed!

First Presbyterian Church is a beautiful and historic building. It is also a vibrant congregation with great pastoral leadership (husband and wife co-pastors) and a caring congregation.

The Church is beautiful, but the building behind it it houses some of the most spectacular photos of years past. You will not want to miss this. It was recommended to us, and we are so glad we went.
