Today, Biloxi turned 315 years old. To celebrate, the Visitors Center threw a party. Biloxi Mayor AJ Holloway blew out the candles on the cake. He was accompanied by former Biloxi Mayor, Danny Guise, and local historian, Edmund Boudreaux. Boudreaux dressed the part of Pierre le Moyne d'Iberville, who landed in Biloxi in 1699. Boudreaux says, “He was an individual who was good to his men. They would follow him anywhere. As far as the English, he hated the English. At every opportunity, he fought the English, and he was never defeated by the English.” February is Coast History Month. Cultural groups from across the Coast will gather at the Biloxi Visitors Center this Sunday through Tuesday for a free event that celebrates the diverse history of south Mississippi.
