Grammar and Clarity[edit]

This article could stand some serious gramatical cleanup. The content seems good, however there are a lot of runon and unnecessarily complex sentences. A partial rewrite (or at least some serious surgery) could make this article a lot easier to read. /Blaxthos 08:03, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Lack of images[edit]

The article as a whole is very informative. There are lot of key points and places metioned, it would be nice to add some images taken thoughout the city(Aurriean (talk) 21:13, 18 December 2008 (UTC))

Need to correct Vernon Dahmer information.[edit]

He did not live in the city limits of Hattiesburg. He lived near Moselle, Ms and the Klan were from Laurel, Ms and most if not all worked at Masonite in Laurel. The trial of Sam Bowers did however, occur in Hattiesburg. Please verify and confirm this information as an accurate history best serves the memory of this civil rights leader. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.123.131.56 (talk) 14:02, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Arts & Culture/ Attractions Section?[edit]

Other wiki articles on Mississippi cities of similar size to Hattiesburg have some section/ specific information about arts & culture and/ or attractions. I am surprised to find no such section in the Hattiesburg article. Badgernation777 (talk) 22:08, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

It is yet to be created. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:20, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Badgernation777, there is absolutely nothing to stop you from creating that section. I'd be happy to help you if you want. John from Idegon (talk) 23:52, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I just started it, but this wonderful city oozes arts and culture so there's lots more to add! Magnolia677 (talk) 00:38, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Hugely impressed, Magnolia677!! I am planning a road trip to Mississippi soon, and after reading the Wiki pages on Clarksdale, Tupelo, and Oxford, I assumed Hattiesburg had a lot to offer in the way of A&C as well. Thank you for your efforts and for proving my assumptions to be correct!!Badgernation777 (talk) 01:24, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
