Locals complete sign for Harrison County

November 14, 2013

Employees for the Harrison County Sand Beach Deprtment work to install a new welcoming sign for the Mississippi Gulf Coast in Gulfport. The sign, along with three pelican carvings that adorn it, was design by Starkville and Oktibbeha County residents. (Submitted photo)

Harrison County has a new sign to welcome visitors to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, thanks in part to the efforts of a number of Oktibbeha County residents.

The sandblasted redwood sign is 18 feet wide and boasts three pelicans, each of which are three times larger than a life-sized pelican. The sign is part of a larger beach restoration project along a quarter-mile stretch of Highway 90 in Gulfport.
