Lafayette Chancery Building

Oxford, MS

Project Description

JBHM was commissioned to design the Lafayette County Chancery Building located near the historic square of Oxford, Mississippi. As the square is the communal point of Oxford and where the County Courthouse is located, JBHM provided a facility that is consistent with the area architecture. The building contains two large court rooms for Chancery Court, a smaller courtroom for justice court and county court, judges’ offices, jury rooms, witness rooms, the board room and offices of the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors, the Tax Collector’s offices, the Tax Assessor’s offices, and the County Planner’s office. Large storage areas for records were also incorporated.
