Waveland and Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi Professional Review and Guide
"New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast have enjoyed strong ties ever since the city’s founder, Pierre le Moyne, Sieur d’Iberville, landed on the shores of Biloxi in 1699. Despite many New Orleanians’ long-held view of the Mississippi Gulf Coast as the Redneck Riviera, the City that Care Forgot and its Mississippi cousin have twined over the centuries. During the nineteenth century wealthy New Orleans families built summer and weekend homes on the Gulf Coast. Many of the beachfront Greek Revival abodes and antebellum mansions still standing today can be seen on Scenic Drive in Pass Christian.
