GREENVILLE, Mississippi — The 122-year-old Washington County Courthouse has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Delta Democrat Times reports (http://bit.ly/1qj9Jfn ) that a plaque marking the recognition was mounted this past week in the courthouse's annex.
The register is overseen by the U.S. Department of Interior's National Park Service.
Walley Morse, the liaison between the Greenville-Washington County Historic Preservation Commission, says the Mississippi Department of Archives and History recommended the courthouse in July to be placed on the registry.
The courthouse was dedicated Oct. 20 1891.
It is 23rd Washington County building or district to be placed on the registry.
The Washington County Courthouse was designed by the Louisville, Kentucky, architectural firm McDonald Bros. in the Richardson Romanesque style.
