Kiln Homes and Condos for Sale

The area of modern-day Kiln, Mississippi, had been inhabited by the Muscogee and Choctaw Native American peoples who had hunted, fished, and trapped in the area for hundreds of years prior to the arrival of European settlers. They lived along the banks of the Jordan River that empties into the Bay of St. Louis. In 1682, a French explorer by the name of René-Robert Cavelier staked claim to the area under the authority of King Louis XIV. To honor the king, Cavelier named the area "Louisiana." Soon after the French government announced their claim over the land, many French-Canadians settled in the area. Most of those who settled in and around present-day Kiln were hunters and trappers with the commercial activity revolving around exporting pelts and hides which were shipped from New Orleans. By the turn of the 19th century, most of the Native Americans had moved to Oklahoma as more and more white settlers began to pour into the area. After the Treaty of 1763, France ceded a huge area of land east of the Mississippi River to Great Britain and it became part of the British West Florida colony. In 1783, Great Britain ceded British West Florida to the Spanish in the Peace of Paris treaties and it became Spanish West Florida. Finally, after tensions with Spain, the United States was able to force the Spanish give up the much-contested territory in 1813.
