Context/Comments
This building was constructed to serve as a Marine Hospital operated by the federal government. In the 1890s it became home to the Natchez Charity Hospital. (Established in 1805, the Natchez Charity Hospital became a state institution in 1839 and was operated as such until 1873, when it came under local control. It was reestablished as a state institution in 1884.) This building burned in 1984. It had been individually listed on the National Register in 1978, but, having burned, was delisted in 1987.
