Sun-N-Sand now a Mississippi Landmark, future still uncertainBy ANTHONY WARREN,
The state has about five months to decide the future of historic Sun-N-Sand hotel in downtown Jackson. .
The Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) board of trustees recently approved designating the Sun-N-Sand Motor Hotel as a Mississippi Landmark.
However, the board adopted a resolution granting the state permission to tear down the facility after June 1, 2020, if no one can be found to redevelop it into a facility that is “commercially viable and that would be an asset to the capitol complex.”
