Gulfport City Council Talks Visitor’s Center

The city of Gulfport may soon have a visitor’s center of its own after the Gulfport City Council voted today to begin talks with the Gulf Coast CVB.
If approved, the visitor’s center would be located in the annex of Grass Lawn, also known as the Milner House. The property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and a year later the home was sold to the city of Gulfport.
Now the building may be open to visitors, to show off Gulfport’s best assets.
The building was destroyed during Katrina, but city leaders constructed a replica to serve as a reminder of Gulfport’s history. It is now used for city functions and rented out for events.
The main building will continue to be used by the city, but the annex would be transformed into a full visitor’s center.
