A brick-lined alley full of public artwork tucked away in downtown Gulfport.
This alley represents the efforts to revitalize downtown Gulfport post-Katrina. Many of the buildings and infrastructure in downtown Gulfport were badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. While construction was underway a few years later, brick pavers from the early 20th century were discovered under the asphalt.
In 2016, the pavers were used as part of a new economic development project called “Fishbone Alley.” The brick pavers underfoot in the tiny alleyway give residents and visitors a glimpse of how Gulfport streets would have looked in 1908. The walls of the alley have been transformed with murals and artwork by local artists, including a 60-foot-long octopus mural painted by local artist Ryan D. Merrill.
