PINE AVENUE

     "In the drive along the sea . . . the tourist sees a long succession of luxurious residences in park-like grounds; extensive boarding-houses with rustic benches scattered along the flower-bordered and shrubbery-shaded walks; and hundreds of pretty cottages with hammocks swinging lazily."

Quoting below from "Along the Coast," as written in 1895:
     "Pass Christian is situated, like all of the other Gulf resorts, on a peninsula the town extending for six miles along the sea front which forms its southern boundary.  On the north are the bayous Bois d'Ore and Portage so named by early French settlers because, the foliage of the forests on the banks of the former in autumn were bright with crimson and gold, the name signifies "gilded woods."  In the other case the bayou some ten (less than two) miles from "the Pass," takes a course to the south and approaches to within a mile of the sea.  In the olden days, the Indians in trading with the French at Old Biloxi, carried their canoes, provisions and furs across this narrow neck of land, saving thereby twenty miles or more in reaching their destination.  Pass Christian, which is pronounced with the accent on the last syllable, (Kris-T-Anne) was so named from the fact that many years ago a Swedish sailor named Christian (de L'Adnier), (Note: Nicholas Christian Ladner was youngest of three sons of the elder Christian) discovered the pass that leads from the Gulf of Mexico into Mississippi Sound near Cat Island."
