City of Pascagoula designated as World War II Heritage City

A great honor for Pascagoula, the city has been designated an American World War II Heritage City by the National Park Service.

The American World War II Heritage Cities program honors the contributions of local towns, cities, counties, and their citizens who stepped into the workforce to support America’s war efforts during WWII.

Only one city can be designated in each state. Pascagoula is one of just 19 communities in the country that have received the designation.

WWII helped transform Pascagoula into the industrial city it is today.

Mayor Jay Willis says it is a tremendous honor to recognize the city’s role in American history.
