Coast museum to be rebuilt on original site
Published: March 23,2011
BILOXI — The Biloxi Maritime and Seafood Museum will be rebuilt at its original site on Point Cadet.
The Sun Herald reports that FEMA and MEMA have told Biloxi officials they won’t fund any additional archaeological studies to determine whether the Tullis-Tulledano property was a Native American burial site or for remediation costs should it prove be a burial site.
The city and museum officials decided to return to their original site at Point Cadet.
The new building will cost about $6 million, which will be paid for by FEMA and insurance. The property will include a 15,000-square-foot Seafood Museum and a 5,000-square-foot Hurricane Katrina museum.
Construction is expected to take about 2 1/2 years after FEMA approves the site.
