About this title

Synopsis:

Biloxis beaches and casinos make the city a haven for Gulf Coast tourists. And since its one of Americas oldest communities, local residents have seen many iconic treasures come and go. Before Hurricane Katrina, more than 150 historical structures dotted the area. Of those, 60 were lost to the devastating storm, including the Father Ryan House, built in the early 1840s. In 1969, Hurricane Camille flattened the Baldwin Wood Lighthouse. Other structures like Biloxi City Hall on Main Street faded away with the passage of time, having stood resolute for decades. Author Edmond Boudreaux recalls Biloxis most significant and cherished landmarks.

From the Author:

Lost Biloxi  is select stories of historic structures and iconic businesses that made Biloxi a historic city. Each chapter covers a structure lost to hurricanes or lost in time. Each structure had historical ties to the people who lived in them, the citizens of Biloxi and Biloxi history. Some of the historical structures are the Old Brick House, Old Spanish House, Baldwin Wood's Lighthouse, Biloxi City Hall & Market, Gus Stevens Restaurant & Supper Club, Six Gun Junction, and Edgewater Gulf Hotel. This book is based on a series of papers I have written about these structures. Hurricanes Camille in 1969 and Katrina in 2005 destroyed historical structures that had become the fabric of our lives in Biloxi. Some of these lost structures were the Bailey House, Father Ryan House, Tullis Toledano Manor, the Foretich House, the Brielmaier House, the Dantzler House, and many more were reduced to piles of wood and brick. Before Katrina there were 160 landmark historical structures as well as other historical structures. Sixty (60) landmark structures would be lost in Katrina alone. A few would suffer extreme damage but survive. In some cases historical structures were lost to modern progress or their history forgotten in time. This book is a collection of the history and photographs of some of these historical structures' lost and forgotten history.
