Home: Welcome
Meridian Pics-13.JPG.jpg

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.

Take the Survey!
Let your voice be heard

Hanbury Preservation Consulting has prepared this survey for anyone who has an interest in Meridian’s past and future.


Please share with everyone you think might be interested.
