Biloxi High School Athletic Field – Biloxi MS

Description

The new athletic field commenced development in 1940, prior to beginning the new Junior High in 1942. The $17,000 project included “grading, drainage and fencing of the new field” (Daily Herald, January 1, 1940). It included a playing field, three practice fields, and a quarter mile track. The field was used for the first time by Biloxi High School vs. Moss Point on September 17, 1941 (Biloxi will use new school field).
