Constructed in 1893 as part of the Harrison County Circuit Clerk's office, the "Old Courthouse," located here, was a two-story, red brick edifice. It was the last remaining structure associated with a complex of courthouse buildings in Mississippi City, which served as the county seat from 1841 until 1902, when the county seat was moved to Gulfport. The original building was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the present replica was constructed in 2009.
