The Confederate White House

The White House of the Confederacy

Located in Richmond, Virginia, the gray-stuccoed mansion built in1818 was home to a succession of wealthy families throughout the antebellum period.  This building has earned a unique stature in American history for its role as the Executive Mansion of the Confederate States of America from 1861 to 1865. The official residence of President Jefferson Davis, his wife Varina and their children, the house was the social, political and military center of the Confederacy. The home has been meticulously restored and is open for guided tours daily.     The Museum of the Confederacy
