America Building (post renovation)

Located at 207 East Front Street in Historic Downtown Hattiesburg, MS, the America Building is one of two structures known as Hub City Lofts, both resurrected in 2013 as fashionable, contemporary, urban living units for those who wish to live in revitalized downtown Hattiesburg. Built in 1907 by Dr. T. E. Ross, the building has been known as The Ross Building, the Royal St. Andre Hotel, and now the America Building. In the 1990's before renovation the America Building was home to the Bluhous Art Studio, and its roof was the venue of the alternative band scene of the day.
