Gulfport is the county seat of Harrison County and the third oldest settlement on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, founded in August, 1699 by Jean Baptiste LeMoyne Bienville. It was ruled by the British and the Spanish before becoming part of the United States in the Louisiana Purchase. The town was severely damaged by Hurricane Camille in 1969 and again by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Reconstruction provided an opportunity for a rethinking of its infrastructure and buildings. Federal grants have allowed the rebuilding of some outstanding new buildings and Beach Boulevard as well as the seawall. The Bay has long been a popular holiday resort for New Orleanians and, with its selection of art galleries, antique stores and with  local festivals, it remains a favorite recreational draw for people around the coast.
