Owners of historic building plan multicultural center
Published: December 19,2011
VICKSBURG — The new owners of the Old Monte Carlo Building want to turn the 100-year-old building into a multicultural center.
The Vicksburg Post reports Linda and James Fondren, the new owners, want to turn it into a museum where people can learn more about Vicksburg’s heritage.
Plans to turn the building into an African-American history museum fell through before the building was sold to the Fondrens.
The building was constructed in 1911 for Christian and Burroughs Co., which built wagons and carriages.
The building deteriorated and in 2007, the city razed the north section of the building, which was damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
