Clarksdale Fire Station wins MHT Heritage Award

Clarksdale Fire Station, Clarksdale, MS – Heritage Award for Restoration
Mississippi Heritage Trust awards comments: Located in downtown Clarksdale, this 1956 International style building was in need of some major TLC. With help from a Community Heritage Preservation Grant and donated labor from Clarksdale’s firemen, a restoration that included repair of the original roll up doors, re-roofing, masonry, electrical and interior finishes have given a twenty-first century polish to this mid-century gem.

Mississippi Heritage Trust Awards in Ocean Springs, MS
Mississippi Heritage Trust Awards in Ocean Springs, MS

Over the past couple days, a few of us went to Ocean Springs for the Listen Up! Mississippi Historic Preservation Conference and the Mississippi Heritage Trust Awards. We are extremely proud to have been a part of several wonderful projects that received preservation awards. We are blessed to have such wonderful clients and to be able to work on such special places.
Ocean Springs is such a magical place and we wish we could’ve stayed longer. It was particularly special to be in the midst of the Walter Anderson Museum of Art and Shearwater Pottery legacy.
