U. S. Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell has announced the designation of 10 new national historic Landmarks, including the Mississippi Capitol.

The Capitol, designed by St. Louis architect Theodore Link, was noted for its unity of design and construction, having been build by a single contracting  firm within a single three-year construction program.

The Mississippi Legislature and the Department of Archives and History applied for the designation from the National Park Service.

The Mississippi Capitol has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1969.
