The Meridian Restorations Foundation

In 1968, five women were traveling to a Federated Women’s Club meeting in Enterprise. One woman said, “We really need a place in Meridian for all of our clubs to meet.” They all agreed, and another woman added, “I know just the place, that home over on 31st Avenue is about to be destroyed, and it is too beautiful to lose.” With that thought, a vision, and lots of determination, The Meridian Restorations Foundation was formed by the members of the nine Federated Women’s Clubs of Meridian. They purchased the home, and the lengthy restoration process was begun. Their dream became a reality. Today, the home is used for club meetings and is rented to the public for weddings, receptions, and parties. It is a tourist attraction and is open daily for tours.
