My husband and I took our 3 grandchildren, ages 10, 12 & 18 last night. There were so many surprises, so much to do! The grounds were amazingly decorated, hayrides for kids and adults, miniature horse rides for kids, outdoor bean bag and checkers games, a guided tour of the homestead by a woman in period dress, a well stocked...

The house tour was excellent but don't miss the museum. It is large, newly built with lots of interesting artifacts. They also have a large research room.

We walked through the visitors center, walked through the cemetery, and took the guided tour of the main house. If you enjoy history and are in the Biloxi area a trip to Beauvoir is just your ticket. It's Jeff Davis' house. The interior is beautiful. The way the walls are painted is extraordinary. Our guide had a great sense of... More

We enjoyed the visit at Beauvior. We sat on the large porch to view all the beautiful large oak trees and the beach while waiting for our tour of the home. You can hardly keep from imagining the ladies in their large gowns holding their parasols walking about the grounds. The tour of the home was interesting, esp. if you... More

Hard to believe what occurred during Katrina and how they have restored the place. Great historical value to this home that the state has saved for all.

This is an interesting place to visit, The house is not vast by any standards, it was a family home and not used for gret affairs of State. It does have great historical value, being the resdence of Jefferson Davis after the Civil war. There is a short guided tour by a well informed guide, who can supply a wealth... More

This is a great place to stop by if you are in town. It is the final home of Jefferson Davis. The tour of the house itself was brief but enjoyable. Our docent was very informative. The grounds were interesting with a garden, a Veterans Cemetery and....several animals! We found this fun and odd. The "Presidential Library" was also a... More

Expect to spend 1-2 hours here. There is a gift shop, the tour of Jefferson's house, a musket demonstration, a museum, a library, and space in the back filled with a camel, goats, sheep, mini ponies, and llamas. The musket demo could use a little work, as the tour guide doesn't explain the demo or provide additional information to the... More

My fiancé and I started out engagement photo shoot here, and the whole property was amazing! There were lights strung about every tree and branch, the flower garden was in full bloom, and the sun was fixing to begin to set. I'll never forget being here. So, in a perspective of places to take photos, the property's landscape is phenomenal... More

Beavoir, which means Beautiful View, is the main attraction but the Presidential Library currently houses an exhibit of Confederate Army artifacts such as uniforms, wagons, weapons, women's clothing and tools of many types. This exhibit is not to be missed. As an added bonus, the property hosts a small peacock farm which at one time also had a camel. And... More
