  • This house holds our nation's history of the Confederacy. It is a quickly little history lesson with a self guided tour that should last 30-45 minutes. Bring quarters for the parking meter. The tour i...  more »
  • My wife and I visited here on a Monday afternoon. The house is located just two block from the capitol building...an easy walk except for the downpour we got caught in returning to our car. The house ...  more »
  • I was not aware that the Confederacy actually had it's first capital here and it's first White House. It is not grandiose, but very interesting.  more »

  • Great free little museum.. Take the time to stop. :) the staff is very friendly... Gave my daughter's a free fan with our purchase of a post card. :) but man, he sure likes to talk. We couldn't get away from him. Lol. It is a self guided tour, but we were never alone... He followed us... And gave us the history of EVERYTHING!
  • Because we arrived after hours, we assumed we could only photograph from outside. After a few minutes of photographing every angle we could to drink in from the outdoors, we took a chance and approached the door. When it opened, we were not only greeted, but warmly welcomed and invited inside. Most places from our experience would have had their foot in the door and we'd be turned away if we arrived slightly late, so it was very refreshing! Bob was very friendly and warm and made us feel right at home as if we were family. We were offered bottled water and we were not pressured to scurry through due to closing time by any means. Instead, we were encouraged to explore at our own pace and take in this unique experience. The First White House of the Confederacy was clean, well maintained, and very informative. The relics and pieces from the period were exquisite, and we were encouraged to take as many photographs and videos as we pleased. Having been raised in the north, I had chosen to purchase a postcard with a cotton field on the face as I'd never seen a cotton field before. When Bob learned this, he went to a back room and came out with a small bundle of cotton for me to take home! He was very generous in numerous ways and I felt sad to wave goodbye. It was a cheerful and memorable experience, and we urge everyone to visit and support this historic place. Also, although history can be found to be dark or light, history should be preserved. Every country, civilization, and race has had 'bad' history. We need to learn from it. By taking care, the good, the bad, and the ugly are not brushed under a rug. It is important to revisit and understand the process and progress we as human beings have/haven't made, and reflect on these.
  • Great place. I would like to reply to the user Warren Jones's comment, "I cannot bring myself to respect this place for the evil it represents." For one matter, anyone with common sense would know that the Confederacy did not represent slavery, although it was something big in its economy.
  • Super friendly and knowledgeable staff here. Cool displays and relics. Definitely worth a stop if you're in town.
  • Docent was amazing. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I will.be going again.
