Fodor's Expert Review Beauvoir: The Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library

Biloxi Historic Home

Severely damaged by hurricane Katrina in 2005, Beauvoir (French for "beautiful view) is "dedicated to preserving and interpreting the legacy of American hero and Confederate President Jefferson Davis, and the Southern soldier." Many of the site's structures have been repaired or restored, and the gardens have been replanted; but conservation efforts of the collections continue in earnest. Guided tours of the home are conducted every half hour, beginning at 9:30 am daily. Self-guided tours of the home and the cemetery are available anytime during operating hours.
