Diamondhead

Trip Planner USA  /  Mississippi  /  Diamondhead
Diamondhead is a city in southeastern Hancock County, Mississippi. It is part of the Gulfport−Biloxi, Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 8,425 as of the 2010 census. In February 2012, Diamondhead was officially incorporated as a city; previously, Diamondhead was a census-designated place (CDP).HistoryIncorporationIn 2009, a petition supported by the Property Owners Association to hold an incorporation election was filed with the Hancock Chancery Court and an election approved the incorporation. Opponents contended that the petition lacked a sufficient number of signatures and that incorporation requirements were not complied with. In 2010, the Hancock Chancery court ruled against the opponents who then appealed to the Mississippi Supreme Court. Further, the appeal claimed irregularities during the hearing on the original objection. On October 29, 2011, the Mississippi Supreme Court upheld the Hancock Chancery court and ruled against the irregularity claims. In January 2012, a motion for extension to appeal the decision was denied by the Supreme Court and a final edict mandating the incorporation was issued. The City of Diamondhead was presented its charter as the 111th city in Mississippi by Secretary of State Delbert Hoseman on February 6, 2012.Name and Hawaiian influenceThe town of Diamondhead was named after Diamond Head, Hawaii. This Hawaiian influence is applied throughout Diamondhead. Most of the roads are named with Hawaiian names, the various community centers and private homes have a Hawaiian look, including prominent Kona/Tahitian roof lines. Originally Diamondhead was designed by the developers in the 1970s to appeal to an older demographic looking for a place to retire near from New Orleans, Gulfport and Biloxi. Over time it has slowly changed from a retirement community to a variety of age groups. Its residents now mostly consist of young families.
