This area remained unimproved for many generations and was known as the "Rice Fields" because of the swamp and marsh that existed there.
The large area along Henderson Ave is now the site for the Sea Breeze Condos.
Quoting below from "Along the Coast," as written in 1895:
"It is to Mr. Charles M. Rhodes. the popular young Mayor of Pass Christian that the writer is indebted for much information regarding the town. Pass Christian was incorporated in 1848, and among the first merchants to establish themselves were Messers Brandt, Courtney, Bohn, Straub and Curtis, these being the old time settlers. Of this number three are already dead, the business being conducted by their heirs. Mr. Patrick Curtis and Mr. N. Bohn are the only remaining survivors of that quintette of merchants whose names are linked with the history of Pass Christian,
The present list of officers of the town as given by 'Mayor Rhodes, is as follows:-Aldermen A. H. May, A. Lizana, John H. Lang and John Thomas. Treasurer, George P. Brandt; Clerk, J. M. Dempf; Marshall, F. L. Pattenotte; Deputy Sheriff, F. P. Lizana; Residing Justice of the Peace, K. L. Thornton."
