Gulfport map

Gulfport enjoys a reputation as a haven for artists, great restaurants, and a boater’s haven. Upon visiting for the first time, people revel in the way it reminds them of the Florida that once lived in every town. We believe our history is our future, and we want to share both with you.

No matter where you go in town, Gulfport’s rich history follows you. At the Gulfport History Museum, you can research the history of your home, learn more about the founding families, or browse our extensive collection of archived photographs.

Gulfport’s museum started life in 1913 as the Methodist church on the northeast corner of 53rd Street and 28th Avenue South. In the 1950s the congregation outgrew the building, and it was moved across 53rd Street. Gulfport Historical Society has used it as the town’s museum since 1984. The Gulfport Historical Society, a 501c3, operates the museum, and with the generous support of our members and the City of Gulfport, we offer free access to any of our archives and artifacts.

We protect and celebrate our seaside village’s past, and preserve today’s memories for the Gulfportians of tomorrow. Please join us.
