The White House of the Confederacy
On one of our daily guided tours, visitors will learn about this meticulously restored National Historic Landmark that was the executive mansion for Jefferson Davis, his wife and children from August of 1861 until April of 1865. However, many more people lived and worked in the house besides the Davis family. Learn about the enslaved and free African Americans, European immigrants, and personal staff who worked in the home, as well as house visitors like Robert E. Lee and Abraham Lincoln. Tours leave regularly throughout the day from the museum's lobby next door.
