Known in recent years at Planters’ Hall, this building on the northwest corner of Main and Monroe streets was built in the mid-1830s as Planters Bank, but in the mid-1900s became headquarters for the Vicksburg Council of Garden Clubs. This photo, from the Old Court House Museum collection, was taken about 1917.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
