French Colonial Memorial Garden & Moran Site
The French Colonial Memorial Garden, also known as the Moran Site, in Biloxi is an ideal place to get away for a few moments or an entire afternoon. Find yourself relaxing in the garden beauty that is reminiscent of elaborate French gardens in all of its features. Dense evergreen shrubs are maintained with a traditional “parterre” style, and small trees that are sculpted in traditional French manner compliment the shrubs, giving the garden appealing heights and depths to draw in visitors.
Visitors can step into the garden via three different entrances. The garden pays tribute to the settlers that are buried on the site. The graves of 32 French Colonial settlers from the 1700s were discovered here. The French Colonial Memorial Garden is the site of the second oldest burial ground of French Colonial Settlers in the country.
