We toured Beauvoir today.  It was the last home of the first and only president of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis.

This statue is in front of the Presidential Library.  It is in a newly constructed building.  The former building was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  

This is the front of the house.  The house itself was still standing after Hurricane Katrina, but the porches were all gone and the water was up to a foot inside.  Millions have been spent restoring it and other buildings on the grounds.

Don't see these two flags flown side by side very often.

This beautiful flower grows on a tree.  The plant name is Japanese Camellia.  Absolutely gorgeous!

It was a nice tour and pretty typical of other homes of the same era.  The sun was shining and the grounds were a really pretty place to get our steps.
