About The Historic Resources Inventory Database
The Historic Resources Inventory database (HRI) is a compendium of information about
Mississippi’s landmarks and architecture. Begun in 1998, the database is the product of our architectural historians’ ongoing
research and analysis of the thousands of design-related historical documents, photographs, newspaper clippings, blueprints,
drawings, and other media within our collection.
The HRI database is a supplement to the Historic Resources Inventory paper files managed by MDAH’s Historic Preservation
Division. The paper file system contains over 40,000 files and includes files pertaining to individual buildings, historic
districts, and artisans and a vertical subject file on topics relevant to the building trades and architectural profession.
The database offers only the most basic information, such as construction date, architect, builder, National Register listing,
and Mississippi Landmark designation.
