Amazing! What a very nice surprise! I had visited Beauvoir many years ago and loved this historical site then. I returned this month to find it well intact even after the devastation of Katrina to this area. Jefferson Davis' home has been completely restored. I could visualize my parents sitting on the front porch of this great house when they visited the grounds in the 1940's. Besides that, it is a great place for anyone who loves history to see how folks lived during Confederate times. On this trip, I also visited the library. Good historical information for history lovers and genealogist looking for ancestry information. Very interesting books about the Confederate period can be purchased in the Beauvoir Gift Shop. This Museum, House and Library tell a true story of the life and times of all who lived during this historical period that changed America!
