The church has contracted Paul Lynn Construction for the daunting task of reattaching the severed steeple.  Once completed, the steeple will again reach 132 feet above the streets of Vicksburg.

Built in 1908, the First Presbyterian Church is a beautiful historic landmark in Vicksburg and the only Richardson Romanesque church of this architectural style in the state.
