Arts & Museums
Part of the Natchez National Historical Park along with Fort Rosalie and Melrose, the William Johnson House was a home owned by William Johnson, a free African American barber. His lifelong diary tells the story of everyday life in antebellum Natchez. The site includes interactive exhibits, furnished family quarters, and a bookstore.
This museum features an exhibit of portraits of Black Natchez (1880-1920) and the Rhthym Night Club Fire. You can see the past come to life through a one room schoolhouse, the church that built character, the home that built character, farming and business artifacts, and an NAPAC video. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Behind the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Natchez, you will find an outstanding collection of over 500 photographs regarding steamboat activities along the river, the families and homes of Natchez, and downtown Natchez, taken from as early as 1840. Natchez in Historic Photographs Gallery was made possible through the generosity of the late Dr. Thomas Gandy and his wife Joan.
