    The shotgun house at 134 Delauney Street (now George E. Ohr Street) in Biloxi was owned by Leo and Lottie Foretich and occupied by Lottie Foretich for almost 50 years. Leo and Lottie moved into the house in 1934. In 1988, the house was moved a block away to the Biloxi town green and used as an administrative building for the City of Biloxi. The house was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005.
