One of the most beautiful and impressive landmarks of the City of Vicksburg is the Old Court House Museum.
The Old Court House, built in 1858, stands today as Vicksburg’s most historic structure, and today I would like to share some pictures I recently captured of it at dusk. The spotlights had just turned on, and there was still some daylight left, which made for some interesting pictures, I think.
I especially like the way the building was framed by the silhouettes of the magnolias and dogwoods ...
I used a flash for this picture and was surprised at how the backs of the magnolia leaves were highlighted.
The Court House is an awesome and impressive sight at any time of day or season of the year, and I look forward to going back to capture it when the dogwood trees are in bloom, which won't be long now.
In the meantime, if you would like to know more about the history of the court house and see more pictures, you can read my post featuring A Vicksburg Treasure.
