Jobs in Gulfport, Mississippi, United States

Gulfport has seen its fair share of changing ownership from one culture to another. Originally, it was the Biloxi Indians that were inhabitants in the area, until the French came along and made it their home. By 1855, it was referred to as “Mississippi City” and was part of the county seat of Harrison County — 1841 to 1902. It wasn’t until 1898, that Gulfport was officially integrated and was founded by William H. Hardy.

In 1902, Gulfport’s harbor was complete and a seaport channel was opened known as the Port of Gulfport. Trade and business started to take shape in the city, in 1910, the Customhouse, as well as the U. S. Post Office were established.

Due to the coastal demographics, Gulfport has witnessed several hurricanes rampaging across the city. Hurricane Camille hit the coastal city in 1969 and caused mass destruction. Again in 2005, Hurricane Katrina brought Gulfport to global headlines due to strong winds and floods shattering sections of the city. The city has shown great courage with every passing tragedy and has rebuilt itself thanks to its brave citizens.

The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center is another interactive and educative zone to develop an understanding of history and science.

A trip to the “Gulfport Dragway” will leave you with an exhilarating experience if you enjoy speeding your way through a bike or car race. Set sail in a luxurious yacht or go fishing with a rental sailboat — the North Star Sailing Charters is the place to inquire. The center allows other activities such as dolphin viewing, moonlight dinners, and romantic packages for couples.

For a unique selection of ale and stouts, the Chandeleur Brewing Company is the place to be. You can also chat up the friendly natives of Gulfport and learn a thing or two about the history of the brewing company. A full tour can be arranged if you are keen on learning how to brew your own beer.
