Very beautiful and interesting. So glad they were able to restore the house after Katrina. Thank you for all the hard work that was done there.

We pulled up to a gate house from which a nice lady appears dressed in 'period' attire. There are many buildings on a large area of property (all appearing to be within walking distance), historic buildings and a brand new beautiful museum type + a cemetery in back (we learned from the lady) - everything can be seen from the...

The house tour and museum provide a nice piece of history. The home has been well loved and maintained over the years (especially post Katrina!). We also enjoyed the information presented during the guided tour of the house. If you are in the area visiting the shore, definitely go visit! We drove a couple hours out of our way to... More

Hello! The tour of the house was great. The Donkey carriage ride was poor. Our guide did not talk more than a few minutes. He was not informative at all. Also, it was hot that day. If you don't like hot weather, don't ride the donkey cart ride in the mddle of the day.

This is really a great attaction thatt allows you to go back in time to the antebellium days of Biloxi. What is now highway 90 used to be people back yards and their private view of the barrier islands. The site is much bigger than it looks and a great place to have a picnic in nice weather.

Go on a cool day as part of the tour is outside. It was a great tour, lots of information available and you could spend the better part of a day there. Put is on your list if you like history.

The tour was informative and excellent. The mule & buggy ride was included and quite long and relaxing. The driver didn't say much unless asked, but if you had questions, he was more than happy to answer them in detail. I liked the historic flags flying out front. It's nice to see this jewel preserved/restored after Katrina.

This was a great afternoon adventure that took you back to the Jefferson Davis era. Friendly people, knowledgeable historians and quite the beautiful Plantation house. They did a spectacular job at refurbishing this house back to period after the hurricane. Kudos!
