What will become the stone marker for the landmark and amphitheater nameplate.

Construction continues at the Chisholm Trail Plaza just above the John A. Lomax Amphitheater in Meridian. Workers are also busy building an elevated platform and pedestal for the historical landmark designation. 

"There will be a stone marker put in place that will actually identify the John A. Lomax Amphitheater [by its name]. Within the stone marker, they will place the placque for the literary landmark. So people can readily identify the amphitheater, as well as the literary landmark."

Meridian Parks & Recreation has been working to add benches and trash receptacles to city parks, and even central areas in downtown Meridian. Workers at the parks are getting ready to pour concrete for both the platform and benches.
