Overview


A peninsular community nourished by the enchanting waters of Mississippi's Gulf Coast, Pass Christian is a favorite tourist destination for thousands of visitors, a treasure trove of architectural gems, and a colorful infusion of American and European cultures. In stately antebellum homes on streets lined with majestic live oaks, Pass Christian's treasured heritage lingers like the balmy gulf breezes. Unlike towns stripped of character in the evolving modernization of America, this is a community where preservation is tantamount to progress. With a six-mile frontage on the Gulf Coast, the town has essentially contained itself within its current city limits for more than 100 years. "The Pass" became one of the early port towns to have schooner access to New Orleans, and many of this city's residents adopted the Pass as a second home in a lifestyle that has prevailed for the past 150 years. The vintage photographs in this collection portray a wide variety of local landmarks, notable citizens, grand homes, and memorable events in Pass Christian's celebrated history. Coupled with informative captions, these snapshot glimpses into the past will evoke fond memories among those who have lived and worked in this coastal community while beckoning newcomers to explore one of the Magnolia State's greatest treasures.
