Antebellum church in Natchez. Clean lines outside and not overdone on the inside. Certainly worth stopping by to see.

If you are in Natchez is appreciate the old town experience this is the location to start off with. This collection of photographs from the mid 1800's up through the early twenty century will provide a direct view of that life.
