Renovating the McMillan Bank Building

When completed, the outside of the building will be returned to an appearance appropriate to the early twentieth-century Livingston courthouse square. The restored facade will feature two exhibit windows for attractive changing exhibits. The west portion of the downstairs will be an all-purpose assembly area suitable for children’s programs, public meetings and small exhibits. The east portion will house the exhibits, featuring long-term exhibits devoted to the art, history, archaeology, and natural history of the Black Belt. The upstairs will contain offices, exhibit preparation areas, storage and collection rooms. It will also include a modern conference room for professional and community meetings. Repairs to the roof, cornice and back wall will begin in Fall of 2012.
