Natchez in Historic Photographs

Located in the Stratton Chapel Gallery at 405 State Street behind the Federal style First Presbyterian Church downtown and across from City Hall is an outstanding collection of photographs taken from as early as 1840 and offering a grand depiction of life in Natchez over the course of its early history. The collection boasts over 500 photographs of steamboat activities along the river, the families and homes of Natchez, and downtown Natchez as it once looked in the days of old. The collection for viewing is made possible through the generosity of the late Dr. Thomas Gandy and his wife Joan who spent many years restoring the photographic works of Henry and Earl Norman. The gallery is open from 10AM-4PM, Monday through Saturday. A $5 donation is requested. Contact the Church Office for more information.
