Statement of Purpose

Although the story of America is usually told through the lives of rich and powerful people, a major part of the great fabric that is the American experience has been woven by common men and women whose determination, hard work and ideals helped to define the American Dream.  Pleasant Reed was a common man who made a contribution to American history in spite of incredible odds.  He built this historic sidehall camelback shotgun house with his own hands in 1887.  Authentic furnishings from the early 1900s will take you back in time to another era.  The relocation of the Pleasant Reed House to the future site of Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art (designed by architect Frank Gehry) insures that this cultural and educational resource can be used to tell the story of a modest but remarkable man who was part of Biloxi’s diverse cultural legacy.
