Natchez City Auditorium
The Natchez City Auditorium was Mississippi project # 1350 from the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works. The 995-seat arena is headed by a large stage, and is designed in a squared-corner horseshoe, with seats on both sides and the back. The building features “a broad, hexastyle pedimented Doric portico” (Mississippi Department of Archives & History).
Community events as well as national tours are scheduled in the auditorium on a regular basis. It underwent renovation in 1999-2000.
