Context/Comments
Termed a "modest skyscraper" upon its completion, the Hotel Vicksburg remains the tallest building in Vicksburg. Its exterior is well-detailed in the Colonial Revival style, while its interior, which is almost totally intact, combines Colonial Revival with Art Deco motifs. Construction of the hotel in 1928 was funded almost entirely with local capital and represented not only the growth and progress of Vicksburg in that decade, but also the city-planning efforts of local businessmen.
