We love putting together our Christmas Postcards each year. We are fortunate to be located in the wonderful small town of Eupora and we love to celebrate the history and richness of our community. We are in the process of choosing images for this years cards, and wanted to share our previous cards. These cards are about honoring and celebrating place-based architecture, something we are very proud to have the opportunity to pursue.

If you would like to receive the 2018 BSA Christmas card, please message us with your mailing address to put be on the yearly mailing list.

If you would like to receive one of our past Christmas cards shown here, please send us a message with which card you would like and your mailing address. We will check to see if we have it in stock and mail it out to you!

Mississippi State Hospital, Whitfield, MS – Heritage Award for Excellence in Stewardship
Mississippi Heritage Trust awards comments: With over seventy historic structures dating back to 1927 in its care, the Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield has made a strong commitment to the preservation of its “southern colonial” campus, designed by N.W. Overstreet. Working with Belinda Stewart Architects, the development of a strategic plan has helped to continue the guiding philosophy of reuse and repair rather than replace. The recent restoration of the cupola of the Administration Building is a fitting symbol of the stewardship that the Mississippi State Hospital has taken with the historic buildings in its care.
