• Hinds County Courthouse - Raymond, Mississippi

      Constructed in 1857-59 by George and Thomas Weldon in the Greek Revival architectural style, this is one of the oldest continually operated courthouses in the nation. During the Civil War, it briefly served as a hospital for confederate wounded. It has been named by the Smithsonian as one of the ten most perfect examples of Southern architecture in the United States.

      If you go:
      The courthouse is currently being renovated but you can get good views of this classic structure from Main Street. Pick up a brochure which lists more historic homes and sites in Raymond at the Chamber of Commerce.
