The 100 Members Debating Benevolent Association (100 Men D.B.A) wasted no time starting their grant activities. First, photographer Gus Bennett set up his equipment for a week and invited anyone who had a history with the building to come by the hall and have their picture made for the “Hundred Men Hall People Project.” Next, the creation of a mural on the building’s south side. This mural, visible from the Bay St. Louis Depot District, highlights some of the great musicians and history of the hall. Other future grant activities include work to the artist-in-residence cottage. The hall is worth a visit with events and activities happening every week.
