Savor a real treat - the Stratton Chapel Gallery within the First Presbyterian Church. After paying respects in the sanctuary, take the stairs to an exceptional world-class museum of 500 photographs which capture daily life in Natchez. This is by far an amazing treasure of...More

I attended a service at this historic church. They had an interim minister who had previously been in Vermont. It was a time of transition for the congregation. A couple days after the service, I had an opportunity to visit the more museum-like part of...More

This church contains a treasure of historic local photos which were saved and restored by a local man. They were fascinating. Highly recommended. Onstreet parking is easy. You need 1.5 hours and it shuts at 4.00 or 4.30 so give yourself time. There is a...More

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.

The photography curated by the First Presbyterian Church is extraordinary. We should have allocated at least two hours for our visit, because there is much to see. Each image is remarkably clear and the details fascinating. (Check out the cutlery pyramids in the riverboat dining...More

We just happened upon this by accident. Really can’t describe how inspiring and sobering this exhibit is. Unlike the Natchez visitors center that makes a fumbling attempt to be politically correct, this exhibit lets the photographers lens capture the image and allows the viewer to...More

We confined our visit to the photo display of old Natchez- and spent much longer there than we thought we would. The pictures are somewhat grouped by categories. For instance, we all enjoyed the room with portraits of the children. You get a feel for...More

If you have time, this church has a fascinating (and surprisingly extensive) gallery of historic black-and-white photos of Natchez streets and people in the 19th and early 20th centuries. I liked seeing the paddle-boats' luxurious interiors, while my wife enjoyed the many portraits of women...More

The church itself is almost 200 yrs old which is neat to see. The collection of historic photos is very interesting. It includes photos of Natchez from the 1800s. Free to enter, all they ask for is a $5.00 donation to help maintain the property....More
