Overview
Since the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, Jackson's North State Street has been home to some of the capital city's major architectural landmarks. North State Street was bordered by stately homes of many different styles and periods, from rather simple antebellum cottages, to grand Greek Revival, elaborate Queen Anne, and elegant Colonial Revival and neoclassical mansions, as well as impressive institutional buildings and churches. However, beginning in the early years of the Great Depression, many of these stately homes and buildings were lost, replaced by apartments, parking lots, and commercial buildings. Through the images in this book, those who never witnessed first hand the majesty of Jackson's North State Street will be able to gain some insight into what has been lost and truly appreciate what remains. For those who remember what North State Street was, this book will be a chance to revisit and reminisce about that lost era.
