Tour Anchuca Mansion,Vicksburg's first Columned Mansion and the town's first antebellum homes to open to the public for daily tours in 1955. This Greek revival landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, opens it doors to visitor from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Walk in the footsteps of many famous Americans, including President Jefferson Davis, to see the opulent interiors with fine antiques and art representing the past three centuries. Tours are $10.00 per person. Most all major credit cards are excepted. Thank you for helping preserve Anchuca.

This will give you a good idea of how the rich plantation owners lived in times gone by. Excellent, informative guides will show you around and there's plenty to see.

The house dates from the plantation days and is enveloped in the history of this part of the country. The owner was available for questions during the tour; he is a mine of information.
