If you are a regular visitor to Southern Lagniappe, you may recall several photo shoots I've shared featuring the Old Court House Museum of Vicksburg.
All of those photo shoots took place on the grounds of the Court House, and focused on the architectural magnificence of the building itself, as well as the glorious old Dogwood and Magnolia trees surrounding the Square.
I also featured pictures of lagniappe I discovered along the way, like the old Ginkgo tree at its most dazzling in the Fall ...
And the court house cat who posed for me on the steps a couple of years ago.
I've even photographed the court house during the "blue hour," right before nightfall ...
As you can probably tell, I am
I returned to the grounds of the Court House recently to capture a few of the Magnolia blossoms with my camera. While I was there, it occurred to me that during the six years we have lived in Vicksburg, I have never ventured inside the museum. I'm not sure why, but perhaps it was because on each visit, I never ceased to find a treasure trove of pictures outside, just waiting to be taken. However, before I left that day, I promised myself that I would soon return to explore the inside of the Court House and little did I know then that I was about to embark on one of the most interesting and thrilling photo shoots I've ever experienced.
I hope you will join me next time as I give you a glimpse of the history of Vicksburg, and a rarely seen view of the city.
In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the history of the Court House, I invite you to read the following information which I borrowed from the Old Court House Museum's website.
