Harrison County, MS History
The State of Mississippi has three counties bordering on the Gulf of Mexico. The middle county of these three is Harrison County. Harrison County was named to honor the of United States President William Henry Harrison.
The first European settlement in what is now Harrison County was built in Biloxi in 1699. This was a French colony. At the time Pierre LeMoyne D’Iberville disembarked at ‘old’ Biloxi in 1699, his contingent discovered the Indian natives who were called the ‘Viloxi Tribe’ that means ‘First People’.
Biloxi became the capital of a vast area of the country which became known as the Louisiana Territory.
According to the United States 2010 census, the populace of Harrison County in 2010 was 187,105 which makes it the second most populous county in Mississippi. The county seats are both Biloxi and Gulfport.
By the 1830’s, both Biloxi and Gulfport began to grow rapidly because of their proximity to the deep water harbor in Gulfport. The arrival of the passenger railway in 1870 offered additional opportunities for prosperity which further developed new employment, new businesses to serve an expanding customer base, and an expanded tourism industry.
Gulfport is Mississippi’s gateway to global commercial enterprise and is Mississippi's principal shipping center.
The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airoport also serves Harrison County.
