Marshall County Courthouse wins MMSA Award

Marshall County Courthouse wins MMSA Award

On July 15, Mississippi Main Street Association (MMSA) celebrated the achievements of Main Street communities throughout the state at their Annual Awards Luncheon in Jackson.

“Each year, the Annual Awards Luncheon highlights the people, projects, and initiatives that drive economic development in Mississippi’s Main Street communities,” said Thomas Gregory, MMSA Executive Director. “Our local Main Street programs are strategic in their downtown revitalization work, and we are proud to recognize their accomplishments over the past year.”

Among this year’s recipients is the Marshall County Courthouse, nominated by the Holly Springs Main Street Chamber as an “Outstanding Public Downtown Revitalization Project.” This award is granted to a municipality that has completed a downtown revitalization project that continues using the building.

The Marshall County Courthouse, a Mississippi Landmark completed in 1870, stands out in the center of the town square of Holly Springs with its tall, domed cupola as a focal beacon that can be seen from far away. Belinda Stewart Architects, PA, is proud to have worked with the County on this restoration project. Our team addressed water intrusion into the building, repaired damaged wood framing, and completely restored the beautiful iconic cupola and clock.

The main courthouse roof scope included replacing the standing seam metal roof and flashings, restoring the upper perimeter cornice, and installing new copper built-in gutters and downspouts. The cupola scope of work included restoring all damaged wood components, including the four clock faces, replacing the framing and sheathing, restoring the wood louvers, new windows, and a new dome and arched metal roofing and flashings. New clockworks were also installed to bring the four-faced clock and bell back to life.

Congratulations to Marshall County Courthouse & the Holly Springs Main Street Chamber on a well-deserved award!
