In 1928, Jackson developer Lucius L. Mayes converted six acres of rugged terrain into a residential development of fully furnished, up-to-date homes with similar color schemes but in a variety of architectural styles. A grand entranceway, created by sculptor Joseph Barras, was highlighted by columns adorned with statues of Pan and a wood nymph to enhance the mythical theme of the neighborhood. This beautiful sylvan setting eventually became the western boundary of Laurel Street Park.

March 3, 1929
The entrance gateway at Sylvandell was designed by sculptor
