BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) – There’s nothing like a little cannon fire and a lot of point-blank, face-to-muzzle interaction to get the heart pounding. But for Terry Bailey, that’s not the only joy he gets from the annual Fall Muster at Beauvoir.
“The most fun I have to interact with the visitors and just try to show them our hospitality and how…
The home of the Confederate States president has long been the site of these reenactments as a traditional way of keeping the memory of these battles alive.
Biloxi had a long road to recovery following devastating hurricane that destroyed the area in 2005. Today, we can confidently say that its offering to tourists is better than ever. Yet, if there’s anything constant, then it’s the connection to the city’s golden age. This is best seen through the tours of stately mansions that belong to the most influential families. Some of these houses are still in the possession of the original families, and some are transformed into museums and allow visits. Regardless of their use, each has an interesting and rich story to tell.
- Completed in 1852, Beauvoir was first a summer home given the name “Orange Grove.”
- During the 1870s, it was renamed Beauvoir and rented to Jefferson Davis.
- Beauvoir stands today as a shrine to Jefferson Davis and is open to visitors 363 days a year.
“Numerous other former Confederate leaders visited the estate while he worked on the book.”
Biloxi is a great tourist destination that is able to offer atmosphere of a mid-size city, but being on the coast, it also offers beach vacation experience. Settled at the end of the 17th century and continuously inhabited since, Biloxi is among the oldest settlements in America. The beach is a prime destination for visitors. If you are interested in the local marine life, a visit to the aquarium can be both educational and fun. The city has many historic and protected homes that can be visited as a part of a tour.
- Going to the Mississippi Aquarium is a must because there are many exhibits and displays that are must see. The aquarium hosts over 200 different animal species.
- Tour a historic home by going to the Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library which is a National Historic Landmark located in Beauvoir.
- Go get some great food from Patio 44 where you can get the best blue crab fondue in the world and pair it with a beer of your choosing.
“Make your beach day even more fun by renting a boat, bird watching, taking an excursion to Ship Island, kayaking, fishing, or taking a sightseeing cruise.”
