We were surprised by the $10 entrance fee so we didn't go in. There was only 1 car in the parking lot so it didn't look very popular on a Saturday afternoon (only open on Friday and Saturday afternoons). Unless you're a civil war or...More

This house offers a look back into the past of not only Abbeville, but America. The war between the states ended here on May 2, 1865.

Oh, if the walls could talk. We were mesmerized by history that just poured out of the walls of this magnificent building. I would have loved to have been a visitor when Jefferson Davis stayed here. Highly Recommended

We were not able to tour the inside as it is open only a limited time on certain days, but this house and others in town are part of a historic tour

Abbeville is full of history and so is this house! We had a group of adults/teenagers touring this building with us and everyone enjoyed it! Staff was also friendly and informative!

The docents are local and full of knowledge of everything to do with this property. Some very impressive rooms and collectables. If your there in Abbeville, go there. Tour only takes about a 1/2 hour.

The mansion, including the grounds, are beautiful! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable in regards to Jefferson Davis' visit to the house along with the family history of the individuals who owned the property. The tour lasted around an hour and ended with a tour...More

Twenty-two of our church members spent an hour and a half with David, our enthusiastic and well-informed docent, touring the mansion. History did come alive as David told us stories about the people who had lived their lives here. Besides the historical significance of Jefferson...More
