The Downtown Greenwood Historic District, Greenwood, Leflore County, Mississippi, will be considered by the Mississippi National Register Review Board for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places at its meeting on July 18, 2019.

Roughly bounded by River Road and West Front Street to the north; Mclemore, Short, and Pelican streets and Avenue F to the east; East Henry and Johnson streets to the south; and Dewey and Henderson street to the west. The boundary at the northwest corner of the district separates the 400 block of River Road at 411.  For more details, the State Historic Preservation Office can provide a boundary map.  

The National Register of Historic Places is the country's official list of buildings, sites, districts, and structures that merit preservation because of their significance in American history. Listing in the National Register results in the following for historic properties:


1.         Consideration in planning for Federal, federally licensed, and federally assisted projects.  The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation must be given an opportunity to comment on all federally related projects affecting listed properties.  For further information see 36 CFR 800.


2.         Eligibility for Federal tax provisions.  The Federal Internal Revenue Code encourages the preservation of depreciable historic structures by allowing favorable tax treatments for rehabilitation and also provides for charitable contributions for conservation purposes of partial interests in historically important land areas or structures.  For further information see 36 CFR 67.


3.         Eligibility for state tax credits.  In March 2006, Governor Haley Barbour signed Senate Bill 3067, which created the Mississippi state historic preservation tax incentives program to encourage the rehabilitation of historic buildings.  For further information, contact the Mississippi Department of Archives and History at 601-576-6940 or refer to the Department’s web site:


4.         Consideration of historic values in the decision by the State or Federal government to issue a surface coal mining permit where coal is located.  For further information see 30 CFR 700 et seq.


5.         Eligibility for Federal grants-in-aid, whenever funds are appropriated by Congress.  For further information contact Jim Woodrick, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer.


Owners of private property nominated to the National Register may concur in or object to the nomination in accord with 36 CFR 60.  Any owner or partial owner who objects to listing should submit a notarized statement (certifying ownership and objection to listing) to Jim Woodrick, Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer, P.O. Box 571, Jackson, Mississippi 39205, before the time the Review Board reviews the nomination on July 18, 2019.  Each owner or partial owner has one vote, regardless of how many whole or partial properties in the district are owned by that party.  If a majority of private property owners object to the nomination, it will not be listed; however, the State Historic Preservation Officer shall submit the nomination to the Keeper of the National Register for a determination of eligibility for inclusion in the National Register.  If the property is determined eligible but not formally listed, the Advisory Council must still be given an opportunity to comment on Federal projects which may affect the district.

A copy of the nomination, the criteria used for evaluation, and more information on the results of listing is available from the State Historic Preservation Officer at the above address, or telephone inquiries can be made at (601) 576-6940.  Comments on the nomination should be received by the Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer before the Review Board meeting on July 18, 2019.

Public Meeting

An overview of the National Register and details of the Downtown Greenwood Historic District will be presented at a public meeting at the Greenwood City Hall on Tuesday, June 18th, 2019 at 4:00pm. Staff from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History will be on hand to answer questions.
