“Photography exhibit is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We did not tour the church (there was no one there when we arrived) but viewed the photograph collection. I was very glad we did. The photographs are interesting in slice-of-life sort of way: family portraits, wedding pictures, children's pictures, adults' portraits, photos of gatherings at homes now lost to fire, photos of significant and everyday local events and the like. It was fascinating and gave me a great sense of what life in the area was like years ago. We were the only people there for most of the time, and therefore easily could move at our own pace, spending more or less time with each group of photos as our interests warranted. There is no cost, but there is a box for donations. I highly recommend a visit even if you have only a few minutes to spend.

“A highlight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Very nice volunteers met me at the door and led tour of the sanctuary. Very helpful information about the history of the church and the town. Self-guided tour upstairs of very large photograph collection is phoenominal. DO NOT MISS!

“Wow -- the Photo Gallery is worth your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Someone at a restaurant noticed we were tourists and insisted we take the time to visit the church.. Wow, we are glad we did. The photos displayed laying out years of Natchez and southern history is like no other. It is on two floors of the church. The church is enchanting. This is on my top ten places to visit while in Natchez.

“Go and see the photography expedition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

The church itself was wll worth a view as it gave an insight to a Southern church. We visited the photography expedition on the upper floors depicting the houses and people of Natchez. This is well worth a visit and is free although donations are trequested.

The historic photo collection for Natchez is here and it is absolutely wonderful. Also, the church itself is beautiful.
