  • Small but free to enter. Exhibits are well maintained and informative. Staff was friendly and enthusiastic. Lots of interesting relics upstairs. Worth a visit.
  • Sincere thanks to the curator Bob who gave us all a most fantastic and memorable tour and information. Can't wait to come back and see it all again. Thank you so much - Highly recommended to everyone to learn the history and keep it alive!
  • Bob the curator was fantastic! His energy was trough the roof. Super knowledgeable and willing to share. Lots of great era memorabilia. Critical part of US history. Artifacts were very interesting.
  • Amazing place for immersing yourself in the Civil War History. The staff are amazing & ultra-conservative, even the black woman working the souvenir shop. They fully agreed with me that we should secede again & they gave me kudos for dealing with my fellow Liberal students. I find their merch kinda pricey, though. I came here once last year & again this year during Higher Education Day. Being able to visit places like this is why I like HED. Sure, the event itself is garbage b/c it's a bunch of entitled students whoring for gov't money, but it's visits like these that make it all worth it. & also, the admission to the House is free!!
  • "Designated Executive Residence by the Provisional Confederate Congress February 21, 1861. President Jefferson Davis and his family lived here until the Confederate Capitol moved to Richmond summer 1861. Built by William Sayre 1832-35 at Bibb and Lee Streets. Moved to present location by the First White House Association and dedicated June 3, 1921."
