Lighthouse was constructed at Pass Christian in 1831 simultaneous with a similar light tower placed at Cat Island. These beacons were necessary to aid schooner traffic between New Orleans and Mobile to make tourist stops at the antebellum hotels of Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Biloxi, Ocean Springs and Pascagoula. The Biloxi Lighthouse, constructed of cast iron in 1848, continues to stand tall on U.S. Hwy. 90 at the beach front.
