JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- The U.S. Interior Department is adding four Mississippi sites to the National Register of Historic Places.

They are Springhill Cemetery in Hernando and historic districts in Carthage, Starkville and Moss Point.

The cemetery was founded in 1836, and the state Department of Archives and History says it's the only remaining feature related to the founding of Hernando. It was the public burial grounds for all Hernando residents, free and slave, until churches and other groups started other cemeteries.

Carthage Historic District surrounds the Leake County Courthouse and has buildings dating back to 1873.

The Downtown Starkville Historic District has buildings that date back to 1874.

Moss Point Historic District has buildings that date back to about 1875.
