Our Most Recent Project

The Vicksburg Historical Society’s new project, Historic Footprints, is identifying local buildings and sites of historic significance, then marking each with a bronzed plaque outlining its role in the community.  A plaque describing the history of each is mounted on the building or other structure to mark the location.

If you are interested in donating funds to support a specific plaque, or the project in general, please let us know below!
