The Bay St. Louis Train Depot (L & N Railroad Depot), built in 1928, is a beautiful mission style two-story building surrounded by park-like grounds. Designated a “Mississippi Landmark” this impressive structure was once the heartbeat of the County. The depot served as the centerpiece in a 1966 Tennessee Williams written, Sidney Pollack directed film, “This Property is Condemned” starring Robert Redford and Natalie Wood. The Depot is also home to a Mardi Gras Museum, the nationally acclaimed folk artist Alice Moseley’s Museum, and the Hancock County Tourism Development Bureau. Built in 1928, in a Mission architectural style, the building and grounds are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the City’s second public property to be listed as a Mississippi Landmark Property.
