Long Description:
The Garvin County building was WPA-constructed. The cornerstone shows the date of 1941. Above the entrance, is the date 1942. The building is in excellent condition and houses several community headquarters, including the 911 services, the Red Cross, Big Five Community Services Employment/Training, and the Delta Community Action Foundation.

This is a rectangular two-story building constructed of rough-cut white stone. The windows on the ground floor are large, nine-pane windows with the outer ones double-hung. The windows on the second floor are similar, but are six-pane. The entrance faces south and has a wide stone surround. Engraved above the entrance is "GARVIN COUNTY / 1942". A second entrance at the southeast corner leads to the upper floor. The roof has been replaced with a gray metal roofing material. At the rear, a wide metal staircase leads to the second level.
