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!

Perfect weekend in Vicksburg!
Chris's loft is so convenient to all that we love in Vicksburg. It was wonderful to have her well-appointed kitchen --we found everything needed! The art, books and furnishings make for a warm, inviting space to relax and entertain. We appreciated the on-street parking steps from the door which made bringing in luggage and groceries a breeze. Downtown is so walkable, we found ourselves stepping out for coffee, off to visit our kiddos in their home, touring Catfish Row and poking through Lorelei Books and other shops giving us time to slow down and stretch our legs. With Hwy. 61 entering town just a few blocks upriver, we took a road trip into the Delta with its open country, red buds and fields and small towns. We are appreciative to Chris for generously sharing her loft the way one friend would open their home to another.
Your warm experience in my space and your adventurous love of Vicksburg and Mississippi is exactly why I share my loft/home! Thank you for your kind words and safe travels!
My wife and I had a great time staying above the H. C. Porter gallery.
This was a unique experience for us. The loft is very comfortable for a large open space and was surprisingly quiet for it's location. Unfortunately we didn't get to hang out on the roof much because of the cold temperatures but it still offered a great view. The location allows immediate access to historic Vicksburg, which my wife and I were very intrigued by, numerous restaurants, and coffee shops, most of which are within walking distance.
Beautiful architectural features with comfort all around!
I felt like I stepped back in history with all the modern comforts in downtown historic Vicksburg. This spacious loft was charming and offered several intimate seating area and even had private - like sleeping areas because of the furniture arrangements. The roof top deck was a treat as was all the artist's special touches. Highly recommend a unique loft experience!
The property was great very clean and everything u needed was there
Nice area but not much to do close but just to relax and sit around its good
We are pleased you were able to relax and enjoy some down time! I hope you enjoyed the loft’s roof terrace and river views during your stay! Chris, if I had known you were bored, I would have loaned you my Kayaks and put you on the river! LOL!
My loft is in the heart of the historic downtown...you were surrounded by shopping, great restaurants with roof top dining and live music, cool breweries, and hip bars!? Also, most people visit Vicksburg for the history embedded in our community...the Historic court house is 4 blocks away, the Mississippi River museum is two blocks away, the Vicksburg National Military Civil War Park( 26 miles of drivable history tour through the loamy bluffs of the battlefields) is a short 2 mile drive to the entrance from my location. We also have the new Margaritaville resort two blocks behind my building filled with raucous family fun. Vicksburg is an artsy, warm river town and we hope you will come back to relax again and to explore your surroundings we are here to help point the way!
Thank you for staying with us!
Beautiful property with everything needed for a great stay.
