Welcome to Biloxi!

Unfortunately, this pretty visitors center downtown was destroyed by the hurricane:

Biloxi Welcome Center
The building's history:
Located on the Town Green, the Biloxi Visitors Center is housed in the c.1895 Brielmaier House. Originally composed of three rooms with a gallery on the front and sides, the house boasts some of the most elaborate Victorian detailing in Biloxi.

The Foretich House, a late 19th Century vernacular lateral wing shotgun style building, adjoins the Brielmaier House. Biloxi's Town Green, a center of community activity, is host to several festivals and events. tourism representatives are available to help visitors with information on many coast attractions.
