Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood (HHN), in Downtown Hattiesburg, Mississippi is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City. The neighborhood is a well-maintained, 23 block area listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
HHN has received several awards and recognition over the years as being a leader in the community in the areas of preservation, community activism, and community involvement. Most recently HHN was a leading voice in the City Redistricting efforts to assure that Ward 4 stay intact and that the majority of the Historic Conservation Districts reside in Ward 4. This was a major concern for the citizens of these Districts, as these districts are able to speak with one collective voice and carry a modicum of political clout.
In addition, HHN has been recognized by the Mississippi Municipal League in July 2012 with the Award of Excellence for Planning and Economic Development (over 10,000) through the City of Hattiesburg. Recognized by the American Planning Association in 2011 as one of the 10 Great Neighborhoods in America. Chosen from over 150 nominees nationwide, HHN was selected as the first place in Mississippi to receive this designation.
