City of Biloxi to sell Glenn Swetman House

The City of Biloxi is looking to sell the Glenn Swetman House to someone who can give it the proper attention it deserves.

The house is a long-time historic landmark that once belonged to Biloxi Banker Glenn Swetman. The home was built in 1927 and was deeded to the City of Biloxi by the Swetman family in the 90s.

The landmark was home to organizations including the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art after Hurricane Katrina and Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

Now, the house sits vacant on 1596 Glenn Swetman Street.  Biloxi Historical Administrator Bill Raymond said, “I think the best use for it, in my mind, would be as a residential for a family to raise children in. It’s a five bedroom, three bath house. It’s a big house, but the Swetman’s raised their kids there and it would be great to see just maintains that life and continue on.”

Proposals to purchase the Glen Swetman House will be taken on Wednesday at 10 a.m.
