Biloxi's signature landmark is open for public tours! Considered one of the most photographed sites on the Gulf Coast, the tour of the historic 65-foot tall structure is not for the faint of heart. Please be advised the climb is strenuous and if you have difficulty climbing or descending stairs unassisted, you should not attempt the tour. Those making the climb should be at least 42 inches tall. The tour involves climbing 57 steps of a spiral staircase inside the lighthouse, and climbing an eight-rung ladder topped by a 19x23-inch trap door into the light room. Along the way, visitors view the waterlines from hurricanes dating back more than a hundred years as they ascend its spiral staircase. Constructed in 1848, The Biloxi Lighthouse was one of the first cast-iron structures erected in the South, and believed to be the only lighthouse situated in the middle of a major highway. The structure stands 65-feet tall, from its base to the tip of the weather vane atop the lighthouse, and it is 14 feet, 10 inches wide at its base. Tour times: Mon thru Sat @ 9a.m., 9:15a.m. & 9:30a.m. (weather permitting) Admission charged. Group discounts available, but reservations required.
The Biloxi National Cemetery, established in March 1934, as part of the VA Medical Center is located on the grounds of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and adjacent to the Keesler Field Air Force Base. The Biloxi Cemetery’s first burial, held on March 24, 1934, was Private Edgar A. Ross, 1st Regiment of the Tennessee Infantry. The cemetery is home to a beautiful monument and several memorials. The Biloxi National Cemetery Monument is approximately 30 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter, and erected in May 1941 to commemorate all who have served their country. There are two square granite markers located around the main flagpole; one donated by the National Association of Atomic Veterans on November 9, 1990, in memory of veterans who participated in the U.S. nuclear weapons testing program, and the other by the US Navy Seabees on July 1, 2010, in memory of veterans who served as US Navy Seabees. There is also a memorial plaque with an original poem by First Lieutenant William S.
