Old Biloxi Cemetery Tour receives award

For more than a decade, the Old Biloxi Cemetery Tour has welcomed thousands of visitors to the city’s historic graveyard.

Before tours begin in the fall, the cemetery is receiving recognition for preserving Biloxi’s history.

The Mississippi Heritage Trust has awarded the Old Biloxi Cemetery Tour with a 2018 Heritage Award for preservation education.

The tours are held annually in the fall with free, self-guided tours of re-enactors telling the story of those laid to rest in the cemetery.

The tour is produced each year by Preserve Biloxi.
