BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
It's a way to teach future generations on the Mississippi Coast about those who paved the way. Hundreds gathered to break ground on the new Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi.
Officials said the road to rebuilding has not been an easy one.
Teddy Busick owned an oyster and shrimp processing plant for more than 20 years before Hurricane Katrina washed it away. He said the deep love Coast people have for seafood industry will last forever.
"It's our heritage. You know it's the whole coast," said Teddy Busick. "It's what we all grew up with as a kid born and raised here. I'm happy to see anybody promote seafood."
Friday was a day of celebration in Biloxi. After seven years the time had finally come to break ground on a new Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum.
"We've had a lot of obstacles to overcome," said Museum Director Robin Kroh-David. "So it just makes it that much more special for us to open and be here today and start rebuilding."
Museum officials said just as the Coast is proud of its seafood heritage the new museum will be something to brag about.
"A beautiful facility. It will have all the various exhibits that we had previously, everything," said Krohn-David. "Plus some new things. We're adding a few new exhibits. So they need to come in and reeducate themselves to all of the unique history and heritage that made Biloxi the seafood capital of the world."
"I believe in heritage," said Biloxi native Jake Mladinich. "I try to preserve as much of it as I possibly can that is of who were my parents, who were my grandparents, where did they come from and why did they come what is referred to as the Old Country?"
After the groundbreaking, guests enjoyed a large seafood feast. Officials said the museum is scheduled to open in May of 2014.
