County Courthouse Remodeled During a 1937 WPA Project

The Itawamba County Courthouse was remodeled as part of a WPA project during 1937. The above scene of the work shows the north entrance to the courthouse on March 22, 1937 as the work progressed. Basically the old 1852 Federal style building was enclosed with an addition of extra rooms and the outside of the building stuccoed making the building style modern. Tomorrow I will post a photograph of the building taken during the 1950's showing the new style of the courthouse created during 1937.
