—Historic Biloxi —This Biloxi welcome arch originally stood at the northeast entrance of Biloxi's old City Park, which was on the northwest corner of Reynoir Street and south of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad depot. The Biloxi Commercial Club and the City of Biloxi worked together to create the park, which opened in 1911 on the land leased from the railroad company. The park was a hub of activity throughout the early 20th Century Band concerts, political rallies, and patriotic celebrations were enjoyed by the public and the park was open to private and organizational picnics, dances, and other social gatherings.
