Two apartment complexes, a bowling alley, an ice factory, a community house, and a historic residence have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. On the recommendation of the Mississippi National Register Review Board, the U.S. Department of the Interior has approved the addition of Gateway (Plaza) Lanes, Alcorn County; Carrollton Community House, Carroll County; Morris Ice Company, Hinds County; McElroy-Hoye House, Newton County; Lindsey Lawn Apartments Historic District, Yazoo County; and J.W. Woolwine Homes Historic District, Yazoo County.

Gateway (Plaza) Lanes is the first bowling alley in Mississippi to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in Corinth in 1960, the one-story commercial structure celebrated forty years of operation under its current owner this year. The building’s sixteen Brunswick lanes, restaurant, and front desk are all original.

The Carrollton Community House was constructed between 1935 and 1936 by the Works Progress Administration. The Rustic style, one-story structure was built with shortleaf native pine logs. Stone chimneys are at each end of the building. In 2000, the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) designated the building a Mississippi Landmark, and it was renovated between 2002 and 2004.
