The Carl Small Town Center has worked on a range of projects over the years in small towns across Mississippi. This page highlights some of our more recent work.
The Carl Small Town Center created a master plan for Greenwood’s Baptist Town neighborhood to improve the neighborhood housing conditions and promote economic development in the area.
In July 2015, the Carl Small Town Center at Mississippi State University was awarded a $25,000 Our Town grant by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to create a trail and make plans for an interpretive center in Marks that tells the story of the 1968 Mule Train.
In partnership with the CREATE Foundation of northeast Mississippi, the Carl Small Town Center’s 2017 CREATE Common Ground project focused on pedestrian infrastructure in Aberdeen, Mississippi.
