First Presbyterian Church Natchez
The clock in the belfry was the official town clock in the 1830s and the city government paid for its upkeep. It was destroyed in the 1840 tornado. The present belfry was built to house a new clock. The brass bell was cast in 1856 and placed in the belfry in 1859.
Slightly visible to the left of the Presbyterian Church is Trinity Episcopal, recommended to me by the lady I met while photographing Holy Family. It is interesting to me that even though I had seen it, and photographed the church next door, I had not only found it not interesting enough to photograph, but did not even recall the building.
