A severely classic Presbyterian Church with impressive galleries and elevated pulpit. Worth a walk past and quick view. It's location is serene. Note the Jewish synagogue just around the corner, Temple B'nai Sholem - a historic site along with the old Catholic church.

Go in the fall. Summer is too hot. Take some cool drinks and definitely wear comfy shoes. Look for the Turning Angel. She watch you from everywhere.

First Presbyterian Church is a wealth of art, music, and history. From the historical design of the sanctuary to the display of photos of Natchez through the ages the church is a must see. The splendid organ has a marvelous sound!

The old photos are a real must see. They were found localy then restored from the original glass negatives. These are a great step in onto past history of the rien and its people. Best of all it only a donation to cet it.
