Historic Biloxi Walking Tour – Stop #11
Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (c. 1902)

Dedicated on September 8, 1902, this example of late Gothic Revival architecture was built to replace an 1870 church destroyed by fire. Gothic detail is legion, with numerous lancet windows of all sizes and sturdy buttresses at every corner, separating the bays of the side façades. The exquisite stained glass windows, imported from Germany, were installed in 1906. This church, which is the cathedral for the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

➵ Turn around and head eastward. Retrace your steps, crossing Reynoir Street then turn left toward the Saenger Theatre sign, which marks the next stop.
