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
