Beauvoir - Review

James Brown, a plantation owner, built the house for his large family in 1952. It changed owners twice, and was owned by a Mrs. Dorsey, family friend to Jefferson Davis himself. Davis, who wanted a quiet place to retire with his books and writings, fell in love with the house, and on Mrs. Dorsey’s death, inherited it. Today, it serves as a memorial to Davis and the Confederate Soldier. Some of the house was destroyed by Hurricane Kartina; these have been reconstructed. Highlights are: 

  • Jefferson Davis Statue
  • Jefferson Davis & Sons Statue – Includes Davis's adopted black child Jim Limber.
  • Library Pavilion
  • Hayes Pavilion
  • The Beauvoir – The house itself, a Louisiana Raised Cottage.
  • Cistern
  • Kitchen
  • Varina’s Rose Garden
  • The Oak Tree
  • Tomb of the Unknown Confederate Soldier
  • Jefferson Davis Soldiers’ Home Cemetery – The graves are mostly from Mississippi Regiments.

You can use the place as a venue for a most Romantic wedding.

  • This place is like stepping back in time. It is very rich in history. It baffles the mind to think how well they were able to do stuff so many many years ago. The fact that there is a Confederate graveyard is quite humbling. The home itself isn't all that lavish but it is certainly worth visiting. There are some incredibly great pieces of antique furniture in there. There is so much history. When you step on the back porch and look out over the landscape you can almost vision yourself back in those days. Well worth the trip.

  • First of all, make sure you go inside and pay first! We entered the premises on March 7, 2018, parked the car, and immediately saw animals! I was drawn to them, then we noticed the graveyard so we walked to it and saw the Tomb of the Unknown Confederate Soldier. Very humbling experience since we had also visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in DC. Our experience on the grounds soured quickly, though, when a security guard met us, asked if we had paid (no), and told us we must pay to see any of the grounds, inside and out. He asked how we got through???? Pretty easily. No fences, no baracades, gates wide open, and most importantly, no signs telling us where to pay or that we couldn't peruse the grounds. Keep in mind my husband is a disabled veteran who uses a cane to walk! After we were escorted to the gift shop to pay (the guard stood there until we paid), we paid and never heard an apology from the guard. Unacceptable. We then visited the inside; the museum was so-so and the building showed signs of deterioration. We appreciate history and believe this facility could be improved to more thoroughly represent the Confederacy and Jefferson Davis's role. Also, they should improve their signage, fencing, and security to ensure visitors know how much admission is, where admission begins, and the correct path to take to the gift shop to buy a ticket (actually you get a sticker).

  • Bouvouir is rich in history. The grounds have Pokemon Go stops and gyms. It also has long walks, beautiful landscape with wildlife passing through. Even saw a rabbit passing by, lots of birds too. The educational opportunities are vast. The history of the American people, is getting thin and watered down. Here at least you can find truth weather one likes it or not. History is about facts, not if we like those facts or not. Please visit! I know you'll be impressed. Enjoy!

  • Historically speaking it is a pleasant and quaint place to visit. Taking the short tour of the home is recommended, as is walking around the graveyard on the back of the property. The newly completed museum is also beautiful, holding some interesting items from the time.

  • The house and grounds were more than I expected and the guide was very knowledgeable. I expected a limited display after the Katrina disaster. Well worth the admission fee. Lots of history to take in... It was also interesting to see how a person handled a lifestyle that he was born into...an institution and way of life that had been accepted and was the norm and legal for a great many years in the United States and many other countries around the world. Persons that will judge a lifestyle from more than 150 years ago, by today's standards and mores, may have an issue with the whole thing.
