NATCHEZ HISTORICAL SOCIETY COLLECTION

1800s-1900s
Original Civil War autographs are restricted; reference photocopies must be used instead.

Biography/History:

Acting upon the recommendation of Dawson Phelps, historian of the Natchez Trace Parkway, the Natchez Historical Society was organized by Edith Wyatt Moore in Natchez, Mississippi, in January of 1954. Moore also served as the first president of the society. The mission of the Natchez Historical Society as stated in its bylaws is as follows: “It shall be the purpose and objective of this society to do all in its power to collect all the available historical material connected with, or associated with, the history of the Old Natchez District, and carefully to preserve the same. It shall also be the purpose of this society to collect, preserve, and diffuse such information as may be available in the field of genealogy connected with the above-named Old Natchez District.”

The society acquired the Coyle House, located at 307 South Wall Street in Natchez, in 1960. The Coyle House was built by Irish-born tailor Hugh Coyle between 1793 and 1794 on a Spanish land grant from Governor Gayoso. As funds permitted, the Coyle House was gradually restored as a house museum in the 1960s and 1970s. It also became the headquarters of the society, housing archival, library, and decorative-arts collections, which were accumulated over the years.

In an attempt to downsize, the society sold its extensive collection of museum artifacts at a public auction in May of 1989. Its archival and library collections were divided between the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and the Natchez Public Library in the early 1990s. However, the society has remained active in historic preservation by funding projects such as the $15,000 restoration of the George W. Miller Memorial Fountain (1911) to its original downtown Natchez location in 1998.

Scope and Content:

This collection is divided into four subgroups: Natchez Historical Society records, private papers and records, Adams County records, and Natchez municipal records. The items in the Natchez Historical Society records subgroup document the activities of the society. The private papers subgroup contains Natchez, Adams County, and Natchez District materials that were donated by various individuals from the 1950s to 1980s. However, no records exist to document the provenance of most items. The Adams County records subgroup includes scattered papers and records of county government. The Natchez municipal records subgroup includes scattered papers and records of city government.

The Natchez Historical Society records contain a leaflet, black-and-white photographs, a print, and plans and elevations (manuscript) regarding the restoration of the Coyle House in the 1960s and 1970s. They also include two scrapbooks complied by Florence LeClercq Eisele between 1957 and 1964, which chronicle the activities of the society and its members and the restoration of the Coyle House.

The private papers and records include correspondence (miscellaneous); Cory family papers; a slave record book; a Leonard Covington biographical memoir; a Benjamin Leonard Covington Wailes memorial resolution; Civil War autographs (restricted); a Confederate States of America ledger; Adams County militia companies’ record book; an Adams Light Infantry secretary’s report; maps; postcards; prints; broadsides; funeral notices; Natchez Institute academic catalogs; Temple B’nai Israel materials; printed materials (miscellaneous); a Masonic Order certificate; a Kendrick-Paul family Bible; Grillo family legal papers; Gaillard family genealogical records; photographs; and W. A. Campbell scrapbooks dating from the 1800s and 1900s.

The Adams County records consist of an abstract of title, an appointment, a ballot, bonds, certificates, deeds and indentures, depositions, election returns, financial records, leases, a list of county hospital patients, oaths, orders, petitions, powers of attorney, summonses, and writs dating from the 1810s to 1940s.

The Natchez municipal records consist of an annual report, a letterpress copybook, minutes, privilege-tax licenses, sidewalk records, voter-registration rolls, and warrants dating from the 1820s to 1940s.
