Welcome to the Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States guide for the state of Mississippi. Use the guide below to track down registered historic sites to photograph for the contest. If you have content to add, feel free to help expand the guide!

Places to photographEdit

National Register of Historic PlacesEdit

The Wikimedia Commons has a category of National Register of Historic Places in Mississippi.

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the federal government's official list of historic places that are deemed worthy of preservation.

Some 2,500 of the 90,000 NRHP sites are also recognized as National Historic Landmarks (NHL), which have outstanding historical significance.


State designated sitesEdit

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History maintains a Historic Resources Inventory Database that includes designated Mississippi Landmarks.

This section needs expansion - can you help? Edit!

Local historic sites and districtsEdit

In addition to historic sites recognized by the federal and state governments, many localities also maintain their own lists of historic sites, landmarks, and districts. Explore whether any local cities by you have their own lists of historical sites (often maintained by local historic societies).
