Pass Christian was officially chartered as a town in 1848 and has water on three sides: the Gulf of Mexico to the south, the Bay of St. Louis to the west and a long stretch of bayou to the north. Pass Christian has survived through Hurricanes Camille, and Katrina as well as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. Its white sandy beaches, coastal casinos, deep sea fishing and unique gift shops will enhance your coastal experience.
Pass Christian was discovered by French-Canadian explorers in 1699, shortly after the first French colony was established in Biloxi. In the Battle of 1814, on the night of December 12, 1814, more than 1000 British troops and 42 barges on route to New Orleans moved through the pass between Ship and Cat Islands and sailed westward along the Mississippi coast, passing just offshore of Pass Christian. The town was a famous resort prior to the American Civil War. It was a favorite location for the beach and summer homes of the wealthy of New Orleans, who built a row of historic mansions along the shoreline, where Scenic Drive was one of the country’s notable historic districts.
