Biloxians invited to participate in centennial celebration

The City of Biloxi on June 30 will observe the centennial of the building housing City Hall, a three-story marble structure that once served as a U.S. Post Office, Courthouse and Custom House.

A 5:30 to 7 p.m. public reception is planned for the day, which marks the 100th anniversary of the building being declared ‚Äúcompleted satisfactorily.‚ÄĚ The building became City Hall in 1960 and joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

The city is now seeking old photographs of City Hall through the years for an exhibit that will be displayed in the lobby of the downtown building.

Those with photographs can bring them to City Hall weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will be immediately scanned and returned. Photos and captions can also be e-mailed to vcreel@biloxi.ms.us.
