There’s an air of mystery whispering on the breeze in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The original inhabitants of the land were known as the Pascagoula tribe, and their disappearance is a bit of a mystery to locals and historians alike. Located on the easter edge of Mississippi’s Secret Coast, Pascagoula is home to white sand beaches, southern hospitality, and a laidback lifestyle.
First on the itinerary should be a stop at the La Pointe-Kreb Museum, the oldest confirmed home in the Mississippi. The home was constructed from tabby (a concrete-like mixture of sand, water, lime and ground oyster shells) and bousillage (a wood frame that’s stuffed with Spanish moss and mud). After a hurricane caused extensive damage, the old home is being restored to its original standing, oyster shells and all.
One of the most iconic sites in Pascagoula is the Round Island Lighthouse. Built in 1859, this eye-catching lighthouse was originally located just four miles offshore on Round Island. However, when Hurricane Georges rolled through in 2010, the lighthouse suffered extensive damage. However, it didn’t take too long for the pieces to be picked up and reconstructed in Pascagoula.
The best way to see the town of Pascagoula, however, is to take a bike tour. The historic sites bike tour winds through outdoor art exhibits, downtown shops, pristine beaches, and historic homes.
