—Jamestown Settlement —


The first permanent settlement in this area was established near present day Biloxi. After the French and Indian War, the territory was ceded by the French to the English, who in turn surrendered it to Spain following the American Revolution. In 1795, Spain ceded most of Mississippi to the United States, and three years later, Mississippi was organized as a territory.
