Briarfield Homes in Downtown Hattiesburg were built in 1941. Briarfield, one of the oldest public housing sites in Mississippi, is undergoing renovation. Milan Hoze, Executive Director of the Hattiesburg Public Housing Authority, says two apartment buildings and twelve units are being remodeled.
In total, there are 20 apartments located on the Briarfield site. Hoze added there are plans in place to renovate all units over time.
