When it first graced the capital city's skyline in 1924, this building soared as Jackson's only bona fide skyscraper. Noted for its distinctive lines and crenellated clock tower, a close observation reveals it as nothing less than a scaled-down version of New York City's Woolworth Building. Home to the oldest Mississippi-based insurance company, Lamar's president at the time of construction was the father of author Eudora Welty. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this building still stands as a distinctive presence over downtown Jackson.
