Tucked away in the outskirts of Picayune (just 45 minutes
from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast), the Henry Smith House
will immediately captivate you with its enchanting grounds
and tranquil setting. Constructed in 1909, and after extensive
renovating, this Victorian beauty is now ready to accept guests.
Each room is carefully designed to promote elegance but also
Truly, we take pride in our city's motto; "A precious coin in the purse of the South." Named for a Spanish coin called a picayune by the French inhabitants of New Orleans, the city was originally chartered in 1904.
Then known as a railroad stop on the Norfolk-Southern line where steam engines were added for the trip north, up the steepening grade, the city quickly grew at the height of the timber boom as giant stands of virgin yellow pine were cut and shipped all over the world in the early 1900s.
Today, the City of Picayune enters the new millennium with the best of its future yet to come.
