Originally on this site was the Slavic Benevolent Association Lodge, a 13,000 sq. ft. structure with a meeting hall accommodating 600 people. Known as the Slavonian Lodge, the building served as a social center for the large number of ethnic Slavs in the area who were key in developing Biloxi's oyster and shrimp industry. The Lodge hosted social activities including a performance
by Elvis Presley on June 25, 1955. The Slavonian Lodge was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
