In Biloxi. Mississippi This Morning

And to those of you with a Confederate persuasion, that means Beauvoir, and that means Home of Jefferson Davis, after the war.

The last time we were here, a little over a year after Hurricane Katrina had devastated the Mississippi Coast, the home was closed. The exterior looked to be in good shape, but interior still damaged.

It was closed when we got to town last night, but we drove by it and it is impressive with the white fence and strategically placed lights shining on it.

The home dates to 1852, and is administered by the Mississippi Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans who have done a great job on it.

Last Home of the President. --Old B-R'er
