20th Anniversary Photo Exhibition

 

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places in Mississippi Program, the Mississippi Heritage Trust partnered with Due South Co-op to host a photography competition to capture the beauty, mystery and promise of Mississippi’s fragile architectural legacy. 47 photographers submitted over 200 images of sites listed as endangered since 1999, depicting places both beautifully restored as well as those in dire need of rescue. From the entries, the jury of Due South Co-op members selected these 35 images.
