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.
If the Mississippi Department of Archives considers the homes landmarks, Council members will then make a final vote to determine if nearly 600 homes will become part of the new district.
