I went with a tour group and we spent the day in Ocean Springs. This was our first and last stop and it was a beautiful train depot that had been turned into a visitor center that everyone enjoyed going. They had several items in there that was prevalent to the region and the woman at the counter was very nice.I bought several items from the Alice Mosley Folk Art Museum which I treasure.
This is the place to stop to get brochures and to learn about the area. There are wonderful displays relating to blues singers and Mardi Gras costumes. The staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, Ask to see the scrapbook they have about Katrina. The before and after pictures will amaze you. Bay St. Louis is very near ground zero for Katrina so the damage done to the community was just terrible. The resilience of the locals ist ruly astounding. Well worth your time!
This is a fun place for the kids they loved seeing the trains pass so close and they have fun activity's like the summer solstice and fairy pageant. They also have a farmers market every week. The train Depot adds charm to old town Bay St Louis. They also have a fish pond and dog park. Very much worth the visit.
We are in BSL for a few months on our way to Vermont. The Depot was on our self-biking tour. It is a quasi visitor center with a museum of a local artist upstairs. There are several great Mardi Gras costumes that I marveled at. You can see up close and personal the detailed work and labor of love that went into each piece. The volunteer staff was extrememly helpful and very knowledgable about the area. She also shared some horrifc stories and pictures of The Hurricane...Katrina. She also shared some Mardi Gras beads with us!! The location is a former depot and the tracks are right out the back door so watch your toddlers. If you love trains, stay long enough and you will see one rolling through. :>}
杏彩彩票投注The county visitor center is here. The ground floor of this beautifully restored train depot has rotating displays. The current display is of Mardi Gras parade costumes. They're amazing, and the admission price is right... free.The Alice Moseley art museum is on the second floor, and is a must-see.
The place to go first before you tour downtown Bay St。Louis。If you go on the second Saturday of the month ask about magnolia bucks!
Very nice, clean, pretty grounds has benches to sit on or picnic. Trees are really old palm trees and a nice touch.
Myrna and staff keep this place updated and historical. Mardi gras and seasonal items are on display.
