The City Hall and marketplace sat in the middle of Monroe Street, between Jackson and Main, in the 1800s. This photo, taken in about 1876, shows the river in flood. The photo was taken from the roof of the Old Court House Museum and is from the museum’s collection.

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.
