Prentice Club. Natchez, MS Dec. 2018

The big news from Natchez is that the Historic Natchez Foundation has acquired the Prentiss Club and will be rebuilding the roof. The exterior will also be restored. These are the first steps towards bringing this Natchez landmark back to life.  If you don’t recall, the building suffered a fire over Labor Day weekend this year.  A GoFundMe account has also been set up if you would like to help the HNF restore the building.  https://www.gofundme.com/raise-the-roof-for-the-prentiss-club

  1. good news about the former prentiss club bldg in natchez. but, i know that the former owners are sad that their project didn’t come to fruition when it was so close to completion; they were brave to tackle the challenge initially. certainly, all of us at mp wish the hnf ‘great good luck’ in this venture
