What a wonderful exhibit of photos, both portraits and street scenes from years ago. This exhibit is off the beaten path but very much worthwhile. If you can't find it, ask. It's worth an hour of your time in Natchez.

The photographs are amazing. They are crisp and very clear. No fading. They were taken in the 1800s in Natchez. We learned so much about the town of Natchez looking at this photos. We learned Natchez was very progressive for its time on social issues.

This museum is a real find for a history buff. It shows many old photos of antebellum houses and businesses, many of which no longer exist. The photos give a glimpse of life in old Natchez. The photo descriptions give information on the city's history.

Went here based on TripAdvisor and having Stratton's ancestors. The photographs do a nice job of capturing a slice in time in Natchez. We only spent 20-30 minutes here but could easily have spent another hour.
