I passed by it today but didn't really have time to place a new tag, so I left it.

Some info...

Current local tag was completed in 1927. It was used up until it was damaged in the 1979 Easter Flood, and has not been used since. There are no current plans to restore this historic structure and excellent example of Gothic architecture...

You are being very FAIR in wanting to give the location of the GROUND this is on.

Its not even storage... roof is almost gone. I heard they considered putting the MS Children's Museum there, but cost to get building inhabitable and safe was too high.

good writeup:

http://worldofdecay.blogspot.com/201...y-jackson.html


The historic Hinds County Armory is located on the State Fairgrounds in Jackson. Most people never see the building and it stands unused and neglected. Mississippi Heritage Trust describes this unusual building (http://www.mississippiheritage.com/list09.html):

"Completed in 1927 for the Mississippi National Guard, the Hinds County Armory is believed to be the oldest surviving 20th century armory in the state. It may be the only building from that era intentionally built as an armory. The National Guard used the building as a training facility for nearly 50 years. The armory was one of the primary mobilization sites for Mississippi troops who served in World War II. Many returning soldiers mustered out in the armory. It is one of the state’s finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture and one of the few secular buildings employing the style."

"The building was damaged in Jackson’s 1979 Easter Flood and has not been used since. The roof leaks, and the building continues to suffer from water damage and a lack of maintenance. Located on the state fairgrounds, the Mississippi Fair Commission has no current plans for the structure."
