Long Description:
Designated as a Mississippi Landmark

Significance:

Built in 1907 in the Craftsman style, the Millsaps Hotel was once a center of community life in bustling downtown when Hazlehurst was a major produce shipping center. Vacant for many years, the two-story brick hotel was close to demolition when the Calling Panther Heritage Foundation stepped in to accept the donation of the Millsaps Hotel.

Threat:

The Millsaps Hotel is currently in poor condition, with large holes in the roof causing further deterioration. The Calling Panther Heritage Foundation is working to raise money to restore the hotel for use as a cultural arts center. There is widespread community support for the restoration effort, but funding remains an issue.
