Photos of Long Beach, Mississippi

By Henry H. Mitchell.

The following three photos of Long Beach were taken during the passing of Tropical Storm Cindy on July 5, 2005. Due to the extreme destruction of Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005, these images quickly became “nostalgic.”

Early Long Beach Historical Marker

Early Long Beach Historical Marker:

“In 1788, Nicholas and Marianne Ladner became the first Europeans to settle in this area. Their log house, known as ‘The Chimneys,’ was used as a navigation point for boats traveling from Mobile to New Orleans. After Nicholas's death, the Spanish granted the land to his widow. Much of modern Long Beach includes the Widow Ladner Claim.”
