Winston County Library (former) – Louisville MS

Description

The old Winston County Library was the first public libary in Winston County, Mississippi. The Colonial Revival, 1-story building is currently in use as a Girl Scout Hut. “The building is eligible [for Mississippi landmark status] as an intact example of community facilities constructed under the auspices of federal public works programs of the 1930s” (Mississippi Department of Archives and History, Historic Resources Inventory database). MDAH indicates the library was built using WPA funds, with Winston County, the City of Louisville, and individuals contributing to the cost of the building.
