Hinds Community College Administration Building, Raymond, MS – Heritage Award for Restoration
Mississippi Heritage Trust awards comments: Constructed in 1951, the Administration Building of Hinds Community College in Raymond had suffered from years of unsympathetic changes. Under the guidance of Belinda Stewart Architects, bad choices such as dropped ceilings and the removal of a portion of the second story were ripped out and the original fabric was restored.

Mississippi Heritage Trust awards comments: The people of Cleveland and Bolivar County have a strong preservation ethic, which is reflected in the care of their stately courthouse. Funding from the Community Heritage Preservation Grant program helped Bolivar County hire preservation architects Belinda Stewart Architects to address exterior masonry terra-cotta repairs and interior plaster repair and the removal of window AC units, repair of original wooden windows and the installation of new central HVAC units.

YMCA Renovation, Mississippi State University – Preservation Award
Mississippi Heritage Trust awards comments: Under the careful hand of Belinda Stewart Architects, the interior and exterior of the 1914 YMCA building at MSU once again shows the master hand of N.W. Overstreet’s original design. The two grand stairways have been reconstructed, dropped ceilings removed, windows and doors restored. The results are stunning.

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.
