Vicksburg's "Architectural Gold"


The beautiful historic town of Vicksburg, Mississippi, is a treasure trove of what I call “architectural art.” It's everywhere … in windows and doors, columns, statues and monuments, houses, both great and small, and churches.  I have captured hundreds of pictures of these architectural wonders, and would like to share a few photos which I enhanced with Photoshop.  I call this collection "Architectural Gold."

I never tire of capturing Vicksburg's architectural treasures.  I invite you to join me next time to see some of the houses that line the streets of our neighborhoods.  From magnificent antebellum mansions to tiny cottages, they are all richly steeped in the history of Vicksburg ... and some have battle scars to prove it.
