The Grand Hotels of the Gulf Coast

From the Pine Hills Hotel in Pass Christian to the Great Southern Hotel in Gulfport and the White House Hotel in Biloxi, many grand and stately hotels once graced the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  Time and progress, with the help of natural disasters, have taken their toll on these grand and historic buildings so that most are only picture-postcard memories, relegated to faded photos in long-lost picture albums.

A brief but thorough article on these Grand Dames of the Gulf Coast can be found on Wikipedia through the following link:
