Visited White Arches during the Spring Pilgrimage 2019. Home was beautiful. So great to see all of the antique furniture. Lots of great info from the home owners and the volunteers.

Columbus Pilgrimage is terrific and this is one of the beautiful houses on the tour. The home is architecturally interesting and the docents seemed very knowledgeable. They were extremely friendly.

"Columbus Eclectic"
Aug 2016 • Couples
White Arches or the Harris-Banks House was built in 1857 for cotton planter Jeptha Vining Harris. It is perhaps the most unique antebellum structure in the historic town of Columbus with its architectural combination of Greek Revival, Gothic and Italianate style. The 8,000-square-foot mansion stayed in the Harris family until 1967, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and has been transformed into a popular bed-and-breakfast facility by the current owners, who have gone to great strides to restore White Arches to its original splendor. It is described as "Columbus Eclectic" for its unique construction. Visitors are overwhelmed by the beautiful woodwork, mirrored glass doorknobs, three-story cupola and original bedroom closets, a rarity in the antebellum era. White Arches, along with Whitehall and Rosedale, are three of the historic houses in Columbus that are must-sees on any tourist's itinerary. It is a picture postcard. Like the grand houses of Natchez, Mississippi, the houses of Columbus survived the Civil War.
