A beautiful historic home and museum. It closes at 5pm, but it's packed with lots of stuff! Tons of memorabilia on the civil war and confederate military. Definitely worth the trip if you're into the civil war.

The thing I loved most about this museum is the amount of pictures they have of the soldiers from that area that fought in the Civil War. They also have a lot of civil war artifacts. Definitely worth a visit.

A lot of local artifacts have been donated from the surrounding area. The place needs to be freshened up. It could use a good dusting, but it is interesting. Nice, local museum.
