Beauvoir was the final home of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. Nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina five years ago, much like the South, it rose again to be better than it ever was. Located in Biloxi, MS, on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast, Beauvoir has stood as testament to the history of Southern Pride and a man who was torn apart emotionally while our country was torn apart literally. Nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, Beauvoir has been lovingly and beautifully restored. Returned to the original colors of when it was home to the Davis Family, Beauvoir stand proud once again. In addition, descendants of the family have donated furniture and items actually used by the Davis family when they lived in the home. The site is now owned, operated and maintained by the Mississippi Division of the Sons of the Confederacy. It's with a great amount of love they do so. Given the history of the site, it's been reported by visitors and a small number of employees that the house is haunted. A photo has shown the figure of a woman standing in the window of the house, in the room that was once the bedroom of the daughter, Winnie. Could it be her? The figure in the photo certainly matches the portrait of her in the house. Are there other happenings there that defy normally rational explanation? Spend an hour with the folks at Beauvoir as we discuss the history and the haunting of an extraordinary and beautiful location located on one of the country's best kept secrets, the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
