Page 13: Pass Christian Books returns to the coast

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

Construction has been completed on a unique building in Pass Christian. The architectural look fits right into our coastal culture.

"We wanted to do two things. We wanted something that fit into the community and reflects our heritage. At the same time we wanted something modern with a lot of windows. We had to feature the view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico," said Scott Naugle.

Naugle has reopened Pass Christian Books on Highway 90 and Davis Avenue. The old Pass Books stood on Highway 90 and Market Street for years until Hurricane Katrina roared ashore and blew it away.

Naugle was determined to return to the Pass and to Highway 90.

"It's the beautiful view. We're back in Pass Christian. We always wanted to come back here," Naugle said.

This is an old fashioned book store that features local authors and promotes community. Pass Christian Books has joined forces with Cat Island Coffeehouse. Folks are invited in for a hot cup of coffee and something to eat.

It's not easy rebuilding on the beach these days with construction demands and insurance costs. Naugle was committed to this project in spite of many challenges.

"You just keep going. Sometimes at the end of the day you think, 'Are we going to get through this?' You get up the next morning and think, 'We'll overcome this. We've come too far,'" Naugle said.
