Flanked on both sides by the communities of Long Beach and Bay St. Louis in Harrison County, Pass Christian has overcome rough weathers with grace under pressure.
Undeniably one of the most resilient communities along the Gulf Coast, Pass Christian encompasses a total area of around 15.3 square miles — that’s more than enough space for a population of around 5,300, according to 2015 estimates. A part of the Gulfport-Biloxi Metropolitan Statistical area, Pass Christian is a lively waterfront community where you can explore dozens upon dozens of shopping, dining, and recreational activities.
Commonly referred to as “the Pass,” Pass Christian was founded by a group of French-Canadian explorers during the late 17th century. Biloxi, a neighboring settlement, was also just recently established as a French colony prior to the discovery of the Pass. Upon foundation, the settlement was named after a deepwater pass, which in turn, was named after a certain Nicholas Christian L’Adnier.
A major event that shaped Pass Christian’s history is the onslaught of Hurricane Camille, one of the strongest hurricanes the country has experienced, in 1969. Around 4 decades later, Hurricane Katrina also inflicted considerable damage in the city. Still, Pass Christian and its locals are resilient and strong.
History is well and alive in the Pass, where you can admire well-preserved historic homes and buildings. Life in this city is carefree, casual, and slow-paced, allowing you to make the most of what is handed to you. Small this town may be, but the Pass is also home to a number of local retail shops and restaurants that make this coastal community a must-visit destination, and eventually, a must-stay.
Perhaps the easiest way to make friends in Pass Christian is to visit its public beach, where locals gather to admire the scenery and just enjoy a great day out. To get to know more interesting characters, however, the best way is to explore Pass Christian’s plethora of local establishments.
