As the first "White House of the Confederacy", the house is amazingly well preserved and has a number of artifacts / relics from the antebellum timeframe throughout the house. The website for this attraction (if you want to know more about it) is: http://www.firstwhitehouse.org/ The gentleman watching the house / tending it while we were there was extremely friendly and...

We stopped at this historic site on the way back from vacation. The house is immaculate and well-kept. The grounds are spotless. Walking into the house gave me the feeling of stepping back in time. To be able to see actual personal belongings of Jefferson Davis and his family was awe inspiring. The Relic Room was my favorite. One of... More

This amazing place served as one of the first Confederate buildings. The house was moved from the original place from few blocks away. Each room has memorabilia from the era. Embark in meeting Jefferson Davis' family man perspective.

The guy who works or volunteers there is very nice and knowledgeable. It was a great time and was exciting to learn about some history during the civil war.

Stopped here on a whim while visiting the area. The house is small, but it is worth the stop. You can't actually walked into many of the rooms. Instead, you get to peer inside a room to see how it was used. One exception to this rule is an upstair room that contains some artifacts from the time period. It... More

Many people are not appreciative of the history of this country. Obviously some is not nice , but it is all history, and the WH is a perfect example of the past, and how people lived. Of course it is representative of white influence.
