Moss Point Central Fire Station

4323 McInnis Avenue | Moss Point, MS
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Nominated for Mississippi Landmark designation

 

Significance:

Constructed in 1926 as the Moss Point Water Works Building, this interesting historic structure has served the community in many capacities in its 87 year history, including city hall, a public bath house, a jail, a police station, a library and, most recently, a fire station. Moss Point residents have fond memories of decorating homecoming floats in the open bays to the rear of the building. Currently in a dilapidated state, Moss Point Central Fire Station sits across the street from the city’s newly constructed $3 million dollar City Hall.

 

Threat:

The Moss Point City Council voted 6-1 to demolish the building at its July 16, 2013 meeting. The Moss Point Historical Commission has been a vocal proponent of restoring the building for a new community use and has submitted applications for the Moss Point Central Fire Station to be listed as both a local and Mississippi Landmark. In a recent public poll, 66% of the participants voted that the building was one of the city’s historic treasures and should be restored.

Nominated by: Moss Point Historical Commission
