Visit the last street that remains of the bustling, naughty port known as Under the Hill. Before the river changed its course this was home to gambling houses and brothels in addition to merchants -- a startling contrast to the antebellum splendor that awaits you on top of the hill. See Old Man River up close!

One of the easiest ways to get a history fix is to visit First Presbyterian Church's exhibit of more than 500 photographs taken in Natchez between the Civil War and World War II. Printed from glass plates and negatives rescued after many years on the back porch of a local home, the collection chronicles everything from riverboats to hairstyles and offers a fascinating snapshot of everyday life along the Mississippi River.

The Rhythm Night Club Memorial Museum was constructed by the Sago Family in 2010 as a place to honor those wounded or killed in the tragic 1940 fire that took the lives of 207 Natchez citizens. Displays include photos, video interviews with survivors, newspaper articles and personal testaments - a "must see" attraction worth half an hour or more of your visit.
