Andrea Saffle | Mapping a Modern MS

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Andrea Saffle is tasked with maintaining the economic revitalization that Downtown Hattiesburg has seen in the past few years. Andrea sees her role as the one who tells the story of those who are daring to differ in Hattiesburg. A city that mixes its rich history with modern creativity, Hattiesburg is well-known for its community and modernity.

“There’s so much that Hattiesburg has going for it. There’s so many creative people and unique people in Hattiesburg, particularly in downtown, so I really see my role as just telling the story of the things that they’re already doing… Each person that comes lays down a piece of themselves.”-Andrea

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
