JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It started as a Christmas display at his house. Now, it's on display publicly.

We're talking about the Lego city of Jackson Dr. Scott Crawford built and for the second year, you can see it at the Mississippi Arts Center underneath the Davis Planetarium on east Pascagoula Street.

Crawford, who is wheelchair bound and speaks in a whisper because of Multiple Sclerosis, says it's not just fun, but educational and this year's theme is civic pride.

Dr. Crawford suggested residents take ownership of their city as well as taking care of their neighbors. He also asks that people pick up the trash on the streets and be good citizens.

Crawford estimates there are 10,000 to 20,000 Lego pieces used in the Jackson replica.

It will be on display until January 15, 2011.
