Description:

Waverley Mansion is one of the most outstanding antebellum plantation homes...

Waverley Mansion is one of the most outstanding antebellum plantation homes in the South. After having been vacant for over 50 years, the Snow family purchased it and slowly and lovingly restored it to its original glory. It is furnished with outstanding antiques and features original mirrors, chandeliers, books, trunks, and other items. It can be reached by boat on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway or by car via Highway 50 from either West Point or Columbus. The most amazing feature is the 65 foot high entrance hall crowned by an octagonal cupola. Listed on The National Register of Historic Buildings and A National Historic Landmark, the property was recently listed on the Civil War Trail.

I've been here four times and I really enjoyed the tour. It is worth 10 dollars to tour if you've never been.

The story of the Waverley is really something else. Head over for a tour and step back in time. This is a great couples activity for an hour or two if you're talkative. The Snow family loves to show their unique and historic home. Ask questions, because there's a lot of things that you'd miss. There's no curator or director,... More

We stumbled upon the Waverly Mansion while on a road trip. We'd never heard of it, but saw a sign and decided to go. The place is extremely interesting with a fascinating history. The tour guide is excellent, well-informed and eager to provide a good experience for tourists. I highly recommend this for an interesting tour.

The history of this home is wonderful. It is still family owned and operated. Great stories of the life of this house and the families that lived and are currently living there. The antiques are amazing!

If you enjoy beautifully restored mansions with a learned tour guide who begins immediately on your arrival, then visit this 1852 gem. Architecture is stunning and well worth the short drive between Columbus and West Point, MS.

The place was perfect for a wedding. Did a great job of catering even if it was raining cats and dogs. Wedding party was able to play golf and lodging was great.

Some historical accounts refer to Waverley Mansion and others refer to Waverly Mansion. It's all the same. Waverley Mansion, located at 1852 Waverley Mansion Road, one mile off Highway 50 between Columbus and West Point, Mississippi, 15 minutes from Columbus, near the Tenn-Tom Waterway on the west side of the Mississippi River, is by all accounts a stunning and haunting...

My husband and I had a wonderful visit at Waverley Mansion and really enjoyed meeting Ms. Snow. It was the perfect mixture of shabby grandeur and homeyness, and Ms. Snow had good knowledge of the history and architecture of the house.
