Fort Maurepas Park and Seaman Memorial

Fort Maurepas
Fort Maurepas

Fort Maurepas was established in 1699 on the east side of Biloxi Bay in what is now known as Ocean Springs by Pierre Le Moyne, sieur d’Iberville.  It is a four-sided fort with pointed bastions at each corner, mounting 12 guns. A moat/ditch and external redans provided additional protection.

The area is now a park and offers grilling, splash pad for children, picnic stations and a small amphitheater. While visiting, one can see the Seaman Memorial which is dedicated to those Mississippi Merchant Mariners who served their country during peace and war.
