Named for the charcoal kilns plentiful in the area at the time of the great lumber mills of Hancock County, ‘the Kiln’ is best known as the childhood home of former NFL great Brett Favre.
The Jourdan River snakes through this rural town, giving residents plenty of recreational opportunities. The Lazy Magnolia Brewery and McLeod State Park are here, and nearby are Stennis Space Center and its Infinity Science Center. Kiln has also become an area for breeding and training horses. One of Mississippi’s largest equine centers is located in Kiln, as is Gaits to Success, a horse-centered therapeutic facility.
