“the first white house of the Confederacy”
The First White House of the Confederacy was the Executive Residence of President Jefferson Davis and family while the capitol of the Confederacy was in Montgomery, Alabama. The house served as the first White House of the Confederacy from February 1861 until late May 1861, when the Confederate capital moved to Richmond, Virginia. Completely furnished with original period pieces from the 1850s and 1860s, the 1835 Italianate style house is open to the public. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974. It is located across from the south side of the Alabama State Capitol, next door to Archives and History Building.
Neat old house. We were very warmly greeted and enjoyed our self directed tour. An intern had a cotton spinning station set up giving some hands on learning.
Arrived 1 minute past closing. Make sure you check the website for hours of operation.
