Owner description: We invite you to visit The Oaks for a tour! Whether you're stopping to stretch your legs in the gardens or touring the house, we think you will enjoy stepping back in time at The Oaks House Museum. To schedule a tour on a day we're not open, please contact us at the email or phone number in our listing. About us: The Oaks (Boyd House) was built circa 1853 and is one of few extant structures in Mississippi's capital city that survived the ravages of the Civil War. An urban farmstead, it was the home of early Jackson mayor, James H. Boyd, his wife Eliza, and their six children and numerous grandchildren. The house, with original and period furnishings, and its Victorian gardens transport the visitor to 19th-century life in Jackson. The Oaks is owned by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Mississippi and is administered by The Oaks House Museum Corporation.

Our docent was very sweet and we loved talking to her. There is not much in there, but what they do have is interesting.

so much of the house's contents were given away and so many unknowns about how the rooms were used, but the guide and the film really help
