Saving Meridian's stories,
one building at a time
From vernacular to modern, from residential to commercial, from governmental to industrial, we believe that the built environment is an intrinsic part of a community’s identity. Preserving the buildings of Meridian, Mississippi, by educating the public, rehabilitating the structures, and engaging the people will help create a sense of place, make people feel welcome, teach the community about our shared past, present, and future -- creating a community that is welcoming, enduring, and livable, now and in the future.
Meridian Architectural Trust is starting an oral history initiative to save the stories of our community before they are lost forever. We will be partnering with several institutions, and we will be offering training in the fall on oral histories in order to involve the wider community.
