“The final home of Jefferson Davis”
Home of Ex-Confederate President of the Confederate States of America where he lived his remaining 12 years of his life (post-war) and where he wrote "The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government." Golf Carts are now available to rent. Guided tour of the home showing how life was lived by the President and his family and self guided grounds (Varina's Garden, Cemetery, and nature trail), Museum, separated into 3 sections: Rotating Gallery, Soldier's Exhibit, and President Davis Exhibit. Research Library including reference books to accommodate most genealogy research focused on the Civil War.
Great Learning about history in the midst of historical sites. The tour was well worth hearing. My family and I truly enjoyed it.
Beautiful home and lots of things to see on the grounds, cemetery, library, store, museum. The museum seems to highlight Hurricane Katrina damage to the house and area but does feature info on Beavoir and the Jeffersons. Tour guide for the house was not friendly or interesting, you can see a few rooms inside but most you have to look at from the porch looking into the windows! Make sure you go into the little house where Davis lived when he wrote his memoirs - there are some very informative videos playing
