We toured this house while in Vicksburg for a girls' get away weekend. The tour guide was very interesting and shared great stories of the homes' history. The home is also a bed and breakfast. We really enjoyed our tour!

This is a location you should visit. The tour is interesting, well done and gives you insights you might not otherwise have into Vicksburg and the old south. I highly recommend
