According to the 2010 Census Harrison County has a population of 187,105. It was named for United States President William Henry Harrison. Harrison County has 978.15 square miles of land and water. It has two Judicial Districts; one in Gulfport and one in Biloxi. Gulfport is the second largest city in Mississippi. Interestingly, 9 of the 11 casinos on the coast are in Harrison County, with the majority in the City of Biloxi.
Because of the commercial growth due to the casinos, Harrison County has plenty to offer the visitor or tourist. There is gaming, fishing, boating, night life, quality restaurants, sun bathing, world class golfing, and all the other things people can find along the beach. Here is an interesting tidbit about Harrison County: There is a pond in Harrison County that is home to the endangered Dusky Gopher Frog. The frog is found nowhere else in Mississippi or the world except for this one pond. How about that for living in one place all your life!
