GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center broke ground Wednesday morning on its first permanent exhibit since Hurricane Katrina.

Kid's Street is a new "mini subdivision" that will show children how a house actually works. Cynthia Minton said one home would display the electrical system, while another might highlight plumbing. 

Gulfport Mayor George Schloegel was among the guests at the groundbreaking. He said the project "broadens the minds of little children."

Construction on Kid's Street is set to begin within a week.
