Pine Hills Hotel - Pass Christian

Mississippi Retro Apparel

The Pine Hills Hotel was built on a 2,300-acre former plantation in the mid-1920's by New Orleans architect Moise Goldstein. The property contained 3.5 miles of shoreline along the Bay of Saint Louis and was located approximately 1.5 miles from the Old Spanish Trail Highway. The 185 guest rooms in the Mediterranean style hotel were arranged in suites to accommodate family groups. Guest facilities included kitchens, recreation rooms, convention facilities, and elevators. Outdoor amenities included tennis courts, a boat marina, an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, and a shooting range.

Within a month after its formal opening in 1926, the hotel was filled to capacity. Nevertheless, the secluded location away from the Mississippi Sound, and the economics of the Great Depression, resulted in the hotel's closure in the 1930's. After sitting vacant for more than a decade, the facility was used by U.S. Army Engineers during World War II. In 1953, the Oblates of Mary Immaculate Religious Order purchased the property and operated a seminary until 1968; in 1969, Hurricane Camille caused significant damage to the hotel structure.

In the 1970's, DuPont acquired the hotel property for development of a chemical plant, and the Pine Hills Hotel was demolished in the mid-1980's.

Mississippi Retro Apparel are wearable flashbacks from years gone by.

They are for the crowd that knew the bars, clubs, restaurants and music of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. They are reminders of the best of times spent with family and friends at the best places, those places, back then.
