Built here in 1934 as part of a U.S. Coast Guard base, the barracks was an E-shaped, Spanish Colonial Revival style building made of reinforced concrete. Arcaded porches lined the building's
wings and central pavilion, which had an octagonal cupola. The first structure at the station was a steel hangar, built in 1933. Used by the Mississippi National Guard after WWII, the barracks was later the home of Biloxi's Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum. The structure was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
