Gulfport Homes and Condos for Sale

Like most places in the United States, Gulfport, Mississippi, was inhabited by indigenous tribes for millennia. One of the most prominent cultures to have built a society here was the Hopewell and Mississippian peoples (hence the name of the state). From those two nations culminated the Choctaw peoples, who are the Native Americans the Europeans reported meeting in the mid-16th century before the arrival of the French. Before the United States government acquired the land in 1803, the French were responsible for establishing Biloxi, Mississippi, and Mobile, Alabama. In 1830, the Indian Removal Act was completed, and the United States government began to remove native tribes from the area to what is now Oklahoma. Right before the turn of the century, the president of the Golf and Ship Island Railroad (G&SIRR) founded Gulfport with the sole purpose of connecting lumber mills located further inland with the coast. It was officially incorporated on July 28, 1898. At this point in the city’s history, it is the second largest city in the state and is the largest city in the Gulfport-Biloxi, Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area. Furthermore, Gulfport is where the US Atlantic Fleet Seabees call home.
