MAGNOLIA STATE MOSAIC A COLONIAL CITY HALL ADJOINS AN ULTRAMODERN COURTHOUSE The Hinds County judicial seat is a contrast to many ante-bellum, slave-built structures, with iron fences, hitching posts, and clock cupolas. Where pansies grow stood Jackson's gasworks before natural gas was found in the city. The city hall is part two-story, part three-story, as its windows show. © National Geographic Society Uufaycolor Photographs by J. Baylor Roberts A MILL TOWN IS A STATE ART CENTER In Laurel's Lauren Rogers Gallery hang paintings by Constable, Turner, Millet, Israels, and modern Americans, such as these landscapes by Thomas Moran.
