Dalton House

Dalton House 10000 bad credit loans 214 South Monroe Street Yazoo City, Mississippi Possibly the oldest remaining house in Yazoo City, the Dalton House is much altered in its present form.  This house is recorded as having been sold with the property in 1837. The windows and the siding of the present structure are replacements of around 1900, but two original windows with blinds remain, relocated to the attic gables.  The in-set porch probably had rectangular section box columns, at some time replaced by the present turned-Victorian posts.

Bethel A.M.E. Church

Bethel A.M.E. Church 214 S. Monroe St. Yazoo City, Mississippi Organized in 1868, Bethel is the oldest African American congregation in Yazoo City.  After affiliating with the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the congregation moved to this site in 1890.  Designed by A.S. King, Bethel A.M.E. is one of the earliest brick churches built by African Americans in Mississippi, and is the only downtown Yazoo City church building left standing after the fire of 1904.  Although the building has had alterations, Bethel retains its historic Romanesque Revival tower, whose steeple is clad in sheet metal panels stamped to resemble shingles.
