Mississippi Federation of Women’s Clubs Headquarters – Jackson MS

Description

The Georgian-Revival building that houses the MS FWC is owned by the state of Mississippi and was  constructed in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The state has the right to terminate the lease on the “highly valuable piece of land” on which it sits. Concern has been expressed among some historic preservationists that the changes may present a threat to the building at some point in the future.
