This event popped up on the Mississippi Department of Archives and History Facebook page yesterday, and I’ve also seen it on posters around Jackson this week:
Jackson became the hub of Modernist architecture in the state when its population exploded after World War II . Learn about these Modern landmarks and the architects who designed them, including in the Fondren commercial district, Woodland Hills, Medgar Evers’ post-war subdivision, and Eastover. After a brief slide preview by architectural historian Jennifer Baughn, participants will board the bus to explore. Lunch at Brent’s Drugs in Jackson’s first shopping center is included. Tour is $40. To register call 601-359-6953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tour is scheduled for Friday, April 26, from 9 AM to 4 PM and will begin at the William F. Winter Archives and History Building at 200 North Street in downtown Jackson. Maybe I’ll see you there!
