Bowmar Avenue Baptist Church appeared to be a relatively new building when this photo was taken. The church, an offshoot of First Baptist, began around 1900 at Clay and Adams and was named Calvary. The congregation now meets in south Vicksburg, so the world “avenue” has been deleted from the name. The photo is from the Old Court House Museum 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.
