Henderson Point -- History
Henderson Point – Pass Christian Isles
The Point/Isles area, less than two-miles-square, has a commonality of lying on the most western tip of the Pass Christian peninsula, remaining un-annexed within the jurisdiction of Harrison County. Through the years, the homeowners have bound themselves together in common causes such as fighting annexation and encroachments of gaming interests. They formed their own water and sewer district and fire department. Located west of the City of Pass Christian, Highway 90 separates the major subdivisions of Henderson Point from Pass Christian Isles. The only distinction between the two is that the Isles is exclusively residential, while the Point has a small commercial district that consists of less than ten enterprises, two large Condominium developments, and home to the spacious Gulfshore Baptist Assembly Campus.
