Boston Valley’s team of architects and artisans created over 1600 replacement terra cotta units for United Restoration Preservation to install on this 100 year old building.

The beauty of the restoration work is being recognized by Masonry Construction Magazine, which has awarded the Meridian City Hall as “Project of the Year”.

Excerpt from Article

United Restoration and Preservation, Inc. recently completed the exterior restoration of the Terra Cotta at the Historic Meridian City Hall. The project, as funded by the city, was part of a four phase master plan to bring the 100 year old structure back to life and rejuvenate the downtown city atmosphere of Meridian, Mississippi.

The structure’s façade is 100% Terra Cotta, with Terra Cotta block back-up. The building had been neglected and the façade was in need of major historical repairs.
