The city of Christian Pass is in Harrison County, Mississippi, and home to a small population but a whole lot of history. Right on the Mississippi Sound, Christian Pass is surrounded by water on three sides, the Gulf of Mexico, the Bay of St Louis and the Bayou. Prior to the Civil War, the town was a popular spot for the rich of New Orleans, and their beautiful mansions can still be found along the shoreline here today.
In the town today, visitors usually opt for boat tours, Gulf Coast charters and fishing adventures. In order to get your bearings, the Historical Walking, Driving and Biking Tour is a great way to start off your trip to Christian Pass. You can pass by historical gems such as the Dixie White House, The Blue Rose (an authentic antebellum home) and the Randolph School, the town's first African American school. The tour will also take you to the Yacht Club that was the first yacht club to be organized in the southern states.
Summer in the southern states can get pretty swampy, so consider visiting in the shoulder months of spring or fall.
