The Oktibbeha County Heritage Museum was recently featured on WCBI News as a “hidden treasure.” Watch the video.

A while back, the museum partnered with Mississippi State University to design a pavilion that would serve as an open-air, small space for programs of educational, entertainment and civic significance. A generous green roof was built over the pavillion, and a “living lawn” of environmentally appropriate plants and grasses were planted.  This phase of the project was designed and constructed jointly by the School of Architecture and the Department of Landscape Architecture under the guidance of landscape architecture professors Corey Gallo and Brian Tempelton and architecture professor Hans Herrmann.Landscape architecture, architecture, building construction science and graphic design students worked on various phases of the project.
