L & N Historic Train Depot

Attraction details
Owner description: The beautiful Bay St. Louis train depot, built in 1928, houses the visitors center, where visitors can get information about businesses and attractions in the Bay St. Louis area, the Mardi Gras Museum, featuring beautiful Mardi Gras costumes and the Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum. The depot itself is set in a park like setting featuring many Live Oak trees, picnic tables, benches, and a walking path. Duck food can be purchased in the visitor center and many ducks and geese are waiting to be fed at the duck pond on the depot grounds. There is a lot to do and enjoy at the depot and to learn the history of this building and of the difficulties experienced in earlier times maintaining a railroad across the nearby Honey Island Swamp. The Alice Moseley Museum is an entertainment venue as much as it is a Museum and visitors to see Miss Alice usually leave the Museum with a smile on their face and a love of Alice Moseley in their hearts.

“Rotating displays downstairs, museum up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

The county visitor center is here. The ground floor of this beautifully restored train depot has rotating displays. The current display is of Mardi Gras parade costumes. They're amazing, and the admission price is right... free.

The Alice Moseley art museum is on the second floor, and is a must-see.
