About
Waverley Mansion is one of the most outstanding antebellum plantation homes in the South. After having been vacant for over 50 years, the Snow family purchased it and slowly and lovingly restored it to its original glory. It is furnished with outstanding antiques and features original mirrors, chandeliers, books, trunks, and other items. It can be reached by boat on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway or by car via Highway 50 from either West Point or Columbus. The most amazing feature is the 65 foot high entrance hall crowned by an octagonal cupola. Listed on The National Register of Historic Buildings and A National Historic Landmark, the property was recently listed on the Civil War Trail.

Don't let the disrepair discourage your visit
Jul 2019
This historical antebellum house transports you back in history. It was my first time visiting the state and wanted to visit historical spots and antebellum houses. This one was definitely one of the places that sparked our interest

Unlike the antebellum houses that we visited in Columbus, this one is a self-sustaining estate of its own. The house looks old as it went into a state of disrepair after the original owner's family ended (forgot how) but new owners came in in the 1960's to renovate it. It was under renovation when we went but I imagine it'll be a good spot for events and weddings once it's back in its former glory.

beautiful old mansion.

We toured privately and it was great to see the work being done to restore it. The grounds need some work but it will be amazing when the restoration is complete.

This was advertised as open 7 days a week and we drove all the way out and it is closed during the week and only open during the weekend. The entire place is being renovated.

Great place to visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
My husband and I saw the sign for the Plantation and stopped by on a whim. It was well worth the trip and very inexpensive to see! Our guide was a very knowledgeable young man who had worked there for 13 years. It’s a beautiful old place with lots of history behind it.

Informative Visit to a Unique Home
Aug 2019
The home has unique features, some of which were helpful for 19th century southern living. The home is stocked with beautiful antique treasures, which are unique in their on right. We toured on a Saturday morning in August, but the home is well-ventilated due to its design. Simply a marvel at some of the materials and construction techniques used over 10 years ago. Many furnishings pre-date the home. Please visit this historic site if you have a chance!

Absolutely loved the architecture and history of this place. The painstaking detail that went into restoration is apparent throughout the grounds. Nice work!!

Amazing Architecture and Home
Apr 2019 • Friends
I am so glad I went to visit this Grand Dame! It has just changed ownership in 2019 so I expect great things to happen to this jewel. It needs a lot of love. The former oweners the Snows lovingly cared for and as antique dealers lavishly furnished it. The architecture will blow you away! Four stories, two of which were lived on. The rotunda is just breathtaking! This home was almost lost. Drive down and see this history for yourself. It is worth it!!

Off the beaten path but so worth it! Tour guide is funny, keeps your attention, and makes the history interesting for adults and kids. Can’t wait to see it as the restorations improve an already beautiful piece of history!
