Hinds County Courthouse
Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 06:00 PMDedicated in 1930, this hulking grey megalith was designed to serve as a temple of justice for Hinds County and was closely patterned after various Greek temples. Comprised of limestone and local granite, the courthouse is a masterpiece of Art Deco design. A quick upward glance at the north and south entrances will reveal intimidating guardians, indeed. Towering sculptures of Moses and Socrates, history's most formidable giver and interpreter of law, keep a diligent vigil over justice in the capital city.
