Let’s talk history…

Main Street Market Café sits in the oldest neighborhood in Vicksburg. The original structure dates to 1840. It now has brick floors that were installed at the turn of the century. Across the street is the George Washington Ball House, the oldest in the neighborhood, and owned by Betty. It boasts as neighbors: the Old Courthouse Museum, Anchuca, Christ Episcopal Church, Planters Hall, The Duff Green Mansion, and The Constitution Firehouse…the list goes on and on. It’s also just a few blocks from Fort Hill and the Vicksburg National Military Park and all are within walking distance of Main Street Market. We want you to wander our neighborhood just like it was yours. We think you will fall in love with it, too. Sally will help you discover her hometown. Growing up in Vicksburg history is what you have, it is your roots, where you come from, and who you belong to. Southerners hold on to the their history but want to share it with all who will listen.

So don’t be surprised if, while you are walking, someone steps off their porch and invites you in for a cool glass of tea and a story or two.
