Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville was a soldier, trader and founder of the French colony of Louisiana. He is a very important person in the history of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. In fact, D'Iberville in Mississippi is named after him. In 1699, he completed a fort in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. This fort was known as Fort Maurepas or Old Biloxi. This fort was destroyed long time ago but, they built a replica which was also destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.These are the buildings that I like in Mobile, Alabama. I like the view especially before the drive under the tunnel. The scenery is so wonderful.
The statue of Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville located in Mobile Landing in Alabama. The scenery in this place was huge ship docks and warehouses.
The statue of Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville standing tall. My favorite building, the RSA Battle House Tower is Alabama's tallest building and owned by Retirement Systems of Alabama (RSA). It is known to be the tallest on the Gulf Coast of the United States outside of Houston, Texas. Amazing huh? I read these facts through Wikipedia.
When you stand beside the statue and look to the right, this is the view that you will see. That is the Holiday Cruise Ship and the future site of The National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico.
