MINUTES: June 8, 2021
President Mark Killingsworth presided over today’s meeting. Allen Anderson provided the opening prayer. Richard Topp led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. The meeting was held at the Holiday Inn North and on Zoom. Joe Bost thanked those who helped with today’s meeting and welcomed guests.
Mark then introduced today’s guest speaker, Bill Raymond. Bill is an Executive Planner and serves as the historic preservation officer for the City of Biloxi overseeing development in the City’s six locally designated historical districts.
Bill’s topic today is the Old Biloxi Cemetery. It was started in 1748 when the property was donated. The property has a 200-foot frontage on the beach and is the highest point in Biloxi. It is believed the property was donated because it already had graves on it and could not be used for anything other than a cemetery. The property was located next to the first French encampment in Biloxi.
 
Our guest, Bill Raymond, and Hattiesburg Club President, Mark Killingsworth.
