Lamar Life Building
When it first graced the capital city's skyline in 1924, this building soared as Jackson's only bona fide skyscraper. Noted for its distinctive lines and crenellated clock tower, a close observation reveals it as nothing less than a scaled-down version of New York City's Woolworth Building. Home to the oldest Mississippi-based insurance company, Lamar's president at the time of construction was the father of author Eudora Welty. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this building still stands as a distinctive presence over downtown Jackson.
