Here are a few vintage views of the Mississippi Centennial Exposition which was to be held in Gulfport, Mississippi in 1917. The exposition was postponed until 1919 when the US became involved in WWI and the grounds and completed buildings transferred to the US Navy for use as a Naval Training Camp. Eventually the exposition was cancelled and the site later became the Gulfport U.S. Veterans' Hospital. The site has been renamed Centennial Park and is currently being redeveloped into a multi-purpose facility consisting of residential and commercial spaces.
