Contemporary Southern Artist Loft
H.C. "Chris" Porter
About H.C. "Chris" Porter
I'm a native Mississippian and a professional artist. I started my studio in 1987 in Jackson and after 20 years moved to Vicksburg. I was drawn by the historic building and the river views! My artwork reflects my love of Mississippi and its rich cultural and blues heritage.
H.C. "Chris" Porter purchased this Condo in 2006
Why H.C. "Chris" Porter chose Vicksburg
My contemporary southern loft is above my signature art gallery in historic downtown Vicksburg on the main street, Washington St. Washington St. is also the Blues Highway, Highway 61,which runs from Memphis to New Orleans. I have found Vicksburg to be a welcoming, artsy, historic and charming town. I have found my home here, but I travel often and am able to share my loft/home while I am away.
What makes this Condo unique
I've been told Mississippi is the last mysterious state in the Union! Vicksburg is a wonderful place to explore Mississippi's unique and historic past. My loft is 3 minutes from the National Military Civil War Park, one block above our riverfront murals, three blocks from the Court House Museum and two blocks from our Mississippi River Museum. The award winning, local shopping, dining and sightseeing is all surrounding my loft. Newly opened, the only rooftop dining/bar in Mississippi is located across the street, 10 South, with it's tenth story view of the River and downtown Vicksburg (just in case my three story private roof terrace isn't enough!) I have created an artist's dream home and it is my pleasure to share it with you!

Great Place to Stay
It was very clean. The rooftop view was amazing. The loft was very comfortable and the decor was unique. I would definitely stay again.
Our stay was for a business trip--I have a hand-dyed yarn business, and we were in town for the Fiber Fun In The Sip festival. The loft is exactly as pictured. The bed is super comfortable, and there are plenty of pillows. The best 2 things for MY comfort were 1) it is extremely peaceful and serene (those old walls block out a LOT of sound) and 2) there is a box fan available for the perfect amount of white noise. Even though we were just steps away from the Cottonwood brewpub which was having their Octoberfest--with live music--the loft remained a tranquil haven.
If the weather had been cooler we would have greatly enjoyed the rooftop terrace, which has fantastic views.
Would definitely recommend!
Absolutely Wonderful Place to Stay!!!
We were in Vicksburg for a family wedding and the loft was an ideal place for all of our family to gather and visit during the weekend. Everyone loved the place especially the rooftop terrace. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night we were there. The restaurants close by were great too; just a short walk to several really good places. The artwork in the gallery and the loft were amazing as well. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you for sharing you lovely space with us, Chris...
Great loft - we had lots of fun!
This would be a great place to throw a party or family get-together. There must have been 6-7 different seating areas plus the space on the roof (with a good view of the river). Complete kitchen, well supplied house, lots of lovely art. We really enjoyed our stay - thank you!
This loft is fabulous
Such a great experience. Modern and without all
The fuss of a hotel. Straight across from 10-South. A must eat in Vicksburg
Perfect view of the river.
