This area in downtown Jackson stretches from Amite Street to Fortification Street and from Mill Street to Lamar. For more than 100 years, this 125-acre spread has served as the unofficial center of black culture in Mississippi's capital. The neighborhood is home to both residences and businesses, and many of its historic buildings have been in continuous use for more than a century. Farish Street was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 as a neighborhood and contains almost 700 individually recognized Historic Places within its parameters.
