|President Jefferson Davis|
The Italianate style home was built in 1835 and is completely furnished with original period pieces from the 1850s and 1860s. Many personal items of President and Mrs. Davis are in the house as well as authentic furnishings of the period.
It is a Confederate house museum which tells three stories: 1) What happened during the spring of 1861 when a government was formed from few resources except cotton and courage. 2) The story of Jefferson Davis, a renowned American patriot long before The War, and his family. 3) The story of the preservation of the House.
