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!
Exactly what I was looking for
Great place to stay - we loved it! Thanks for sharing your place with those who want to rent it !
Terrific Place to Stay
We really enjoyed our stay in Vicksburg. This apartment is very special! It is spacious, comfortable and well furnished. The artist has many personal touches and we spent much more time hanging out than we expected because it was such a nice place to be. The rooftop terrace was a special treat. You could hear music from nearby bars without fighting any crowds. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
Must see and stay!
Loved this gem! The beautiful open space filled with art, love and great energy...rooftop lounge with great view of river. We agreed one night wasn’t enough. This was quick overnight on the way to beach, was in great walking distance to restaurants and bars. We will be back and extend for at least full weekend.
Unique stay in a quaint downtown!
Our family found the unique above gallery apartment to be a fun place to spend a night. The owner/artist’s personal touches in the unit were interesting-books and music choices abound.
Communication was great. Very clean room with comfortable beds.
A wonderful experience!!!!
This artist’s loft is so interesting, I could have spent half my vacation time just admiring the decor. Hope I am able to return some day.
This historic property is in the heart of downtown Vicksburg with shopping, fine dining, wine bars, live theatre, art galleries, an art house movie theatre and museums all within a short blocks! Come spend a weekend exploring and rejuvenating in this warm and comfortable loft space! The National military park is only 2 miles away. The River Museum and the old court House Museum are just a few blocks away.
