The structural evaluation that was prepared for the 300 block of this district explains that a few of the buildings are structurally sound while several are unstable.  We offered a variety of acceptable solutions to fix these historic structures as well as the cost estimate for each phase.

Farish Street - 300 Block

Farish Street, located in the heart of Jackson, MS, was the business center for African Americans from the late 19th century until halfway through the 20th century.  Businesses started leaving Farish Street in the 1970s and the trend has continued until present day, leaving just a few businesses still open in the district today.  Many have come along over the past 30 years with plans to rejuvenate Farish Street but a majority of what remains are buildings that are on the brink of ruin.
