A new roof is finally going up on the National Register-listed Prentiss Club in Natchez, which suffered a terrible fire back in September 2018, just as it was about to reopen after a major renovation. Designed by New Orleans architects Soule & MacDonnel in 1904-1905, the Italian Renaissance-style building originally housed the elite Prentiss Club and was later a masonic temple. The Historic Natchez Foundation is now the owner and has taken this important step to get the building dry and stable, and they posted this picture over the weekend. For pictures before the fire and a few from a few days earlier in the roofing project, see the MDAH Historic Resources Database.
