I thought this was an incredible story about a piece of history that was discovered AFTER Katrina. The Beauvoir house in Biloxi, Mississippi! Here is the article from CNN ……
“You can’t miss Beauvoir as you drive along scenic U.S. Highway 90 through Biloxi, Mississippi. Its grand staircase, with the railings scrolling outward, welcomes you like open arms.
The front porch wraps around the entire front of the home, supported by regal white pillars, common during the antebellum period.
It’s the kind of front porch where you can envision someone sitting in a rocking chair with a glass of iced tea, as the breeze from the beach offers the only respite from a humid August afternoon.
When Hurricane Katrina devastated Mississippi’s coastal areas, the storm tore up the home. But it also peeled back a little slice of history about Beauvoir that might never have been known otherwise.
Beauvoir was the last home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.”
