James O. Eastland Federal Building (former) – Jackson MS

Description

The James O. Eastland federal post office and courthouse was constructed in 1933-34. It is a “five-story, limestone, Art Deco interpretation of a classical building” (www.gsa.gov). A new courthouse recently replaced this one, and the Eastland building is now privately owned.
