VISIT MISSISSIPPI’S OLDEST STANDING STRUCTURE
Extraordinary piece of architectural history
The LaPointe-Krebs House and Museum
Preserving History for our Future
Located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in Pascagoula, the LaPointe-Krebs house, built in 1757, has been scientifically dated as the oldest standing structure in the State of Mississippi and the Mississippi Valley. Originating from the French Colonial period, the LaPointe-Krebs house (formerly known as the Old Spanish Fort) pre-dates the American Revolutionary War by nearly two decades.
