Waveland, MS History
Waveland, Mississippi is a community located in Hancock County and is about 3 miles West of Bay St. Louis which is the County Seat. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Waveland was estimated to be 6,488 in 2013. The City of Waveland was incorporated on March 6th, 1888.
Waveland was nicknamed the Hospitality City in the second half of the 19th Century and was also known as the Land of the Waves. Waveland has been a long established summer retreat and vacation resort for wealthy visitors from both New Orleans and Natchez, Mississippi. During that time period, Waveland was considered to be an exclusive community where those who lived there were well acquainted with each other. Many of the most expensive residences and most elaborate grounds were established in Waveland in the period that immediately followed the Civil War.
Those who resided in these estates during the summer, kept these properties in immaculate condition during the winter months. Many New Orleanians resided in Waveland all year round. The men departed every morning by train and arrived home every evening.
During the early 1870s, the journey to Waveland aboard the Louisville and Nashville railroad, was considered to be an exceedingly pleasant trip. The trip to between New Orleans and Waveland took approximately 90 minutes through the beautiful Louisiana bayou.
Waveland has restricted its beach front for residential use only which makes Waveland the only city on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with commercial intrusion.

Waveland also features some of the most beautiful sugar white sand beaches on the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast along with access to a vast array of terrific restaurants, outdoor attractions, and scenic byways and the excitement of two 24-hour non-stop casino resorts in nearby Bay St. Louis.
