Parkhaven residents restricted from new construction

Homes in the Parkhaven neighborhood may soon become part of a new historcal district if the Hattiesburg City Council approves. Temporarily, homeowners can not take part in any new contruction until a final decision is made.

The process to become a historic district involves inventory sheets created from photos and architectural surveys of each home which will be sent to the Mississippi Department of Archives.
