Presbyterian Church, built 1860 - The Presbyterian Church was in the process of being built in 1861 when the Civil War hit town and construction was placed on hold for the war years. General Grant used all three churches as stables for his horses. The northern soldiers marched around town blowing the organ pipes and the pews held feed for the horses. After the war, the northern people were so incensed by Grant's disrespect for the sanctity of the church they sent money to assist in the completion of the church and donated the beautiful Czechoslovakian windows. During the Yellow Fever epidemic in 1878 the Sunday School rooms on the first floor were used as a morgue. The facade was originally a tower and after 1900 was changed to the present architecture. This church has been used publicly, being adjacent to the City Hall. It was also the home church of the Mississippi Synodical College and the College girls were required to attend church.
