Our Tour Homes
 


Martha Vick House
Visit the last original Vick family home in Vicksburg. This mini-mansion, built for the unmarried daughter of Vicksburg's founder, Newit Vick, has been carefully restored and furnished as a "fine but comfortable" home.
 


Ahern's Belle of the Bends
This breathtaking Italianate mansion sits atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River and is one of Mississippi's best preserved historical homes. It showcases beautiful oval, arched woodwork and trim and intricate Bavarian plaster and gold leaf crown moldings throughout. Four original chandeliers and many original antiques adorn its interior.
 


Steele Cottage
Built in 1829, the home is more primitive than our picture of antebellum. Constructed along a hillside, the downstairs was built of handmade brick with the best plumbing available - an indoor cistern. Occupied by the newspaper editor during the Siege of Vicksburg, the cottage gave up its wallpaper for printing.


Duff Green
The lovely 3-story Duff Green Mansion was constructed by skilled slave labor and was used as a hospital for Confederate and Union solders during the Civil War.


McNutt House
Governor Alexander McNutt's home prior to his becoming the State's 12th Governor is among the oldest residences in Vicksburg and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places in addition to State and County Historic Landmarks.

 


Featherston Magruder House
One of the few surviving antebellum homes in the dead center of historic Vicksburg, the Featherston Magruder House is a magnificent example of an Italianate Revival remodel of a classic Greek Revival architecture. The original building, erected in 1831, was built by Richard Featherston, a planter and school teacher, to put his family and the town's first school room all under the same roof.  The Featherston family was a perfect example of early American migration and its impact on the civil war.
 


The Baer House Inn

A charming bed and breakfast retreat, this exquisite example of Eastlake Victorian was built in 1870 by Leona Baer. The home features handcrafted American chestnut and black walnut detailed woodwork. Within walking distance of museums, restaurants, art galleries, antique shops, and historical sites of the Civil War.


McRaven Tour Home
Hear the fascinating and sometimes eerie stories about the people who once called McRaven home. National Geographic Magazine has called it the "time capsule of the South." Explore the architecture of three different time periods: Frontier (1797), Empire (1836), and Greek Revival (1849).



Church of the Holy Trinity

Noted in the National Register of Historic Places, Holy Trinity boasts six Tiffany stained glass windows and the only known windows to honor those who died on both sides in the Civil War. Home to the Conservatory of Fine Arts.
