How You Can Help
Just imagine if every museum and library were to close and the only place that children were able to learn was strictly limited to their text books and the internet...
Currently Civil War historical sites, both in the North and the South, are becoming endangered due to the times and are at risk for closure and complete loss. It is a fact that history museums across the country are seeing a steady decline in attendance.
Beauvoir is more than just a house. Beauvoir is a historic landmark that has endured more than 165 years of history along our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. In the time that it was a residence, Beauvoir hosted people from all over the world who came to visit the various owners of the home. Her owners made impact on the history of the United States and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Beauvoir is also one of the few original antebellum homes left on the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It is more important now than ever for you to help with the constant preservation and restoration of this beautiful home and we cannot do so without your help! We invite you to check out the many different ways you can assist Beauvoir in moving forward below.
We look forward to a bright future as our facility continues in our mission of educating the public and supporting the cause which was set forth by Mrs. Varina Davis when she turned Beauvoir over to the capable hands of the Mississippi Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans all those years ago.
