Mississippi Top Holiday Attraction

Trees of Merrehope named “Mississippi Best Holiday Attraction – 2023”

“Top Haunted Attraction in Mississippi.”

Memories of days gone by…

are alive at Merrehope and the F.W. Williams house, both historic homes in Meridian. Each home stands as a testament to time. Each speaks volumes about Meridian’s history. Merrehope is the only historic home open to the public. Despite General William T. Sherman’s Civil War claims that “Meridian no longer exists,” Merrehope is one of Meridian’s only remaining Greek Revival homes.

The Meridian Restorations Foundation has launched the “Raise the Roof” Capital Campaign, our comprehensive plan to save and operate Merrehope and the F.W. Williams Home.

A new roof is needed at Merrehope as well as immediate repairs to both houses. Under the Board’s leadership, Merrehope has been awarded a grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History for a new roof and repairs to the damage and deterioration caused by leaking rainwater. This work (Phase 1) will start Summer of 2024! The roof is critical but only part of the vision. The Meridian Restorations Foundation is determined to restore Meridian’s oldest homes to their past grandeur.  Partner with us in this endeavor to preserve, restore and maintain these treasures.
