Welcome to Mississippi's West Coast, Hancock County.


Named for John Hancock, signer of the Declaration of Independence, Hancock County was established in 1812.
In 1699, Pierre le Moyne d'Iberville and his brother, Jean Baptiste le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville,
claimed the Gulf Coast for France and King Louis XIV. Native Americans were the first to welcome
these visitors in 1699, however the people of Hancock County continue this tradition of Southern Hospitality!
