Interesting Moss Point Facts
Early Moss Point was home to a flourishing timber industry. Lumber was shipped from the area to ports as distant as Europe and South America.
Though lumber operations ceased during the Civil War, they came back strong after the conflict ended. Twelve sawmills were active along the river during the late 1890s and early 1900s, including nine located within a couple of miles of one another.
Unlike other cities in Mississippi, Moss Point wasn't officially recognized as a town or village before being incorporated as a city.
