It’s that time of year to prepare nominations for the annual Best of the South award, given by the Southeastern Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians to the best preservation or restoration project in the South.
Mississippi has been well represented in the past, winning the award for Beauvoir in Biloxi (2009), Hattiesburg’s 6th Street USO Club (2010), and last year, the Charnley-Norwood House in Ocean Springs. Maybe you know of a project in your neck of the woods that deserves recognition across the region?
