  • Guy that lives here is a real jerk. I don’t know what his deal is but he’s super offensive and seems to hate anyone not of his own race or sexual orientation. Would not recommend. Building and yard is very pretty. But current tenant is just awful.
  • Beautiful old mansion. Thankful for the governor's opening for Christmas tours.
  • We showed up for the 9:30 tour and found we were the only two there. Our guide, Becky, was warm, inviting and very knowledgeable. The mansion itself is beautifully restored and the period appropriate furnishings are meticulously maintained. The tour was free. Definitely a worthwhile hour spent.
  • Awesome place, if you love Mississippi, you need to check it out.
  • Didn't hear to many good things about this guy.
