Part 4 |  Main |  Part 6

Beauvoir. It’s French for “Beautiful View.” And no wonder. The last home of Jefferson Davis, U.S. Soldier, Congressman, Senator, Secretary of War, and Confederate States President, looks out from the Biloxi Coast, over Mississippi Sound and the Gulf of Mexico.

Plantation Owner James Brown built the the Louisiana raised cottages a summer home in 1852. The place changed hands a few times before David, in the process of purchasing Beauvoir, inherited the estate. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
