Kiln

Trip Planner USA  /  Mississippi  /  Kiln
Kiln is a census-designated place (CDP) in Hancock County, Mississippi. It is part of the Gulfport - Biloxi, Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 2,238 at the 2010 census.HistoryKiln takes its name from the many kilns once found in the area that served the timber industry. During the boom years, Kiln was home to many timber mills, a hotel, and a hospital. The Jordan River Lumber Company was one of the major local employers."The Jordan River Lumber Company was incorporated in South Dakota in January 1913, and domiciled at Kiln, Hancock County, MS. In January 1913, the company purchased the mill of W. W. Carre Company, Ltd., at Kiln, on the Jourdon River. The original mill burned and was replaced in 1914 with a new mill with a cutting capacity of 150000ft per day. In 1922, the mills in Kiln and Lumberton were consolidated at Barth, MS, the division point on the Mississippi Southern. In February 1930, the mill cut out and was dismantled."A few older structures remain, including Annunciation Catholic Church and the original post office (later Curet's Grocery), which has since been turned into a lawnmower repair shop. The Kiln was partly flooded during Hurricane Katrina, along the Jourdan River and its tributary bayous, but served as a major point for reconstruction of Bay Saint Louis and Waveland afterwards.
