United States District Courthouse

Natchez, Mississippi

The conversion of the mid-nineteenth century building known as Memorial Hall into a United States District Courthouse is an unusual state and federal partnership involving the City of Natchez, Adams County, State of Mississippi Department of Archives and History, U.S. Marshals Service, General Services Administration, and the Courts.

In Phase 1, the exterior was restored and the interior was cleared of non-original elements. Phase 2 includes the build-out of a light colored interior with built in wood casework for the Marshals and Courts, as well as a new stairway, elevator, and sallyport additions to the historic structure.
