About Natchez Architectural and Art Discoveries: Located in the heart of historic downtown Natchez, we specialize in selling architectural salvage ranging from cypress flooring, wrought iron, bricks to heart pine. We salvage from a variety of sources including ghost towns such as Rodney and Humburg, MS, as well as antebellum buildings located across Mississippi and Louisiana. These materials have been recycled and used in renovation projects that inject life back into many a historic building including old homes and churches. To add, we love unearthing the stories behind what we sell as well as following where they end up. We are based in the historic Brown Barnett Dixon's on Main Street, Natchez, which is on the national register. During your visit, you can also buy and sip on a cold beer while you browse our inventory and gallery, which showcases the original works of some of the area's finest artists and artisans.
