Moss Point is a riverfront city known for the Spanish moss that hangs from its historic oak trees. Before the turn of the 20th century, a thriving lumber industry supported the city. Once known as “Elder’s Ferry,” it got the name Moss Point from the loggers and raft riders who called it “Mossey Point.” Today, Moss Point features historic churches and beautiful classic architecture. The junction of the Pascagoula and Escatawpa rivers makes it inviting, inciting fun enthusiasts to experience what the locals call the good life.
