Port Gibson


On my way to visit Natchez for the first time, I stopped in Port Gibson because I wanted to visit the Windsor Ruins, an antebellum mansion that burned leaving nothing behind except the Greek columns that were incorporated into its architecture. If you haven’t been there before, the Windsor Ruins are kind of like Mississippi’s own Stonehenge from the antebellum period.

While there, I decided to drive around the town square. It seems as if Port Gibson is a dying city, and that’s a shame. I noticed an old art deco movie theater and a colorful civil rights mural painted on one of the walls near the courthouse or main part of town.

I’m not sure who painted it, but I’d like to know.  If you do, e-mail me at or Tweet me at @lareecarucker.
