Fete La Pointe Krebs House Museum opens July 1.
The La Pointe-Krebs House Museum is set for a July 1 opening. It will express the French Colonial history of Pascagoula and Jackson County. In the spirit of the period are re-enactors Pete Floyd and Therese Demetropoulos who are admiring one of the museum’s pieces, a replica of the Krebs Cotton Gin constructed by Joe Krebs, a descendant of the inventor. The museum is supported by funds raised at the annual Fête La Pointe galas. (Photo-Joanne Anderson for The Mississippi Press)
