Group pushing for downtown to be declared historic
Published: October 12,2012
TUPELO — Officials are starting a campaign to have the downtown declared a national historic district.
Officials with the Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association tell the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that group will do a historic resources survey to see if the central business district has enough buildings to support the designation.
Main Street went through the process in 1991 and didn’t qualify for the district.
Officials say the city has a good chance now because more buildings are at least 50 years old and renovations have been done to make the structures more historically accurate.
Tupelo already has several National Register districts.
Officials say the survey and the application will be submitted in July 2013.
