Description - Vanished Mississippi Gulf Coast by Jim Frasier
In his introduction, the author writes, We offer this book as a reminder to the world of what the vanished Mississippi was before August 29, 2005, and considering the unyielding spirit of her people, what it will surely be once again. From Biloxis Beauvoir, Confederate president Jefferson Daviss Greek Revival-style cottage, to Gulfports Mission-style Dantzler House, historic landmarks that once lined Mississippis beaches and represented a bygone era of unsurpassed luxury have either been heavily damaged or reduced to rubble by Hurricane Katrina.The history, architecture, and cultures of the towns of Ocean Springs, Pascagoula, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pass Christian, and Bay St. Louis are each described from their beginnings to the present day, including over 100 color photographs that show what existed before and after Hurricane Katrina.
