Ocean Springs Real Estate
Settled by the French in 1699 and renamed by a local doctor who believed the local springs had rejuvenating qualities, Ocean Springs now has a reputation as an arts community. Nationally-renowned painter and muralist Walter Inglis Anderson called Ocean Springs home, and many more are finding this beautiful city inspires their creative sprit, too. A secluded and historic downtown is filled with a variety of art galleries and ethnic restaurants that quench the adventurous appetite.
Ocean Springs’ location between Pascagoula’s shipbuilding industry and Biloxi’s Keesler Field led to the city’s development as a “bedroom community” during and after World War II. Residents remain attracted to the charming and historical atmosphere complimented by majestic oak and magnolia tree-lined streets. Today, Ocean Springs is benefiting from the growth and development of neighboring Biloxi’s casino industry. Growth along Highway 603 includes new hotels, restaurants and other services.
With the recent growth, citizens of Oceans Springs are well-aware that the ambiance and wonder of Ocean Springs is rooted in its history and natural environment. Efforts to combine new economic growth, while preserving the architecture and green spaces Ocean Springs is famous for, are continuous as the city looks toward its future. The respect for and preservation of Ocean Springs’ natural and cultural heritage is displayed through a variety of resources. The Gulf Islands National Seashore was established by the National Parks System to protect three of the last undeveloped barrier islands on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, and is a popular destination among residents and visitors alike. Ocean Springs’ public beaches are well-kept and the warm waters off-shore still hold a bounty of delicious, fresh seafood. In fact, local residents still purchase freshly caught shrimp fish, crabs and oysters from local merchants.
Celebrations and events compliment the fine fishing, golfing, aquatic adventures and heritage tourism available throughout the year in Ocean Springs. The only thing missing from making Ocean Springs the perfect place to live, work and play is you!
