In 1698, the French Explorer, Pierre LeMoyne Sieur d'Iberville, sailed into the mouth of this river and found pearls. He named it 'River of Pearls'. The Natchez Trace, 100 years later, avoided the marshy lowlands by following the ridge between the Pearl River and the Big Black River for 150 miles. The last 75 miles of the river course have served since 1812 as a boundary between Mississippi and Louisiana.
