HANCOCK COUNTY HISTORICAL MARKERS

Given the name “Magnolia Markers”, Hancock County is home to a total of about 25 State Historical Markers.  These markers commemorate significant dates, people, events, and historical places in Hancock County.  Unfortunately, weather, fire and time have taken their toll on the buildings some of the markers have been erected to honor.  With the exception of a very few destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and not yet replaced, the markers still stand as a remembrance to Hancock County’s storied past.

The Hancock County Historical Society maintains an updated list of the Magnolia Makers erected locally and a list of 17 can be accessed by through the following link: Magnolia Markers in Hancock County.  A complete list can be found at MississippiMarkers.com.

Information on the 39 Harrison County Historical Markers can be accessed by the following two links:   HARRISON COUNTY HISTORICAL MARKERS and StoppingPoints.com.

Jackson County is home to 26 markers and information on them can be found either at JACKSON COUNTY HISTORICAL MARKERS and StoppingPoints.com.
