The Raphael Building is a relatively recent acquisition for the Historic Natchez Foundation. Listed with more information on our Properties Page, the building is comprised of an 1840s-era, two-story, brick townhouse with a similar 1940s addition. In August 2019, the Foundation decided to address the non-original iron balcony covering the main facade of the Raphael Building.

Likely a 1940s/1950s update, the balcony had fallen into disrepair and did not represent an original detail of the building. The Foundation utilized Germany Construction to assist in the process. The removal revealed joist pockets remaining from an original balcony. From this information we surmise the building probably sported a simplistic balcony without a roof, similar to those throughout downtown Natchez. Check out several before and after images below.
