The Old Courthouse Museum
Night at the Museum on September 23rd! Call 601-636-0741 for more information
or visit the museum today!

Night at the Museum is a fundraiser for Vicksburg’s Old Courthouse Museum, which is privately funded. This year, in honor of the 200th anniversary of Mississippi’s statehood, the theme is “Mississippi Before Statehood”.

This year, the event will be held inside to avoid issues with Vicksburg’s unpredictable weather. Priced at only $10 a person, over a period of about forty-five minutes, participants will take a walk through the history of pre-statehood Mississippi via the stories of five historic figures and facts about their particular contributions, location, etc. In character, event presenters will represent:
-Davion a Jesuit priest – St Pierre Mission 1698
-Monsieur de la Tour – overseer of French plantation at Fort St. Pierre 1721
-William Selkrig – small farmer at 3 islands 1778
-Don Manuel Gayoso de Lemos – military governor of
West Florida (fort Nogales) 1790’s
-Tobias Gibson – founder of modern Methodism in this
​ area 1799-1804
Night at the Museum is a great event for the entire family. Whether mildly interested in history or a serious history buff, a tourist or a local, this is a great way to spend a Saturday evening for a great cause.

Haunted Vicksburg Tours with Morgan Gates

Haunted Vicksburg Ghost Walk
Come take a walk on the dark side with Haunted Vicksburg’s Ghost Walk! A twelve-block, 90-minute stroll through Vicksburg’s oldest and most haunted neighborhood. The Trail of Tears, antebellum duels, yellow fever epidemics, and a 47-day siege have left old Vicksburg with quite a legacy of “unfinished business” and restless spirits. Tours are Fridays and Saturdays (Mar – Nov) at 8 p.m. We ask that guests arrive by 7:45 p.m.

Haunted Venues Tour
Vicksburg has so many great ghost stories that we couldn’t fit them into one tour. The Haunted VenuesTour is a 10-mile, 90-minute tour where we visit four more of Vicksburg’s haunted neigh. We later learn of a young man who had an early appointment with death, and about a vanishing steamboat and more. Tours are Monday-Thursday at 8 p.m.
We ask that guests arrive by 7:45 p.m.

Main Street Market Cafe
Lunch is offered Monday - Friday, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 pm. "Simply Southern, Creatively Cajun." Menu changes daily and seasonally guaranteeing all freshly prepared dishes. Offers hot lunch specials, sandwiches, homemade soups, and crisp garden salads. All come with Betty's delightful biscuits. Outdoor dining available.
