Ongoing Preservation

Call to Action: Beauvoir Needs Your Help! 

The preservation of Beauvoir Mansion and the property is of paramount importance to ensure that the misson of Beauvoir is upheld and while tropical storms and hurricanes have plagued the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Hurricane Katrina was the worst in living memory.  It demolished most of the buildings on the 52 acres of Beauvoir property but the mansion still stands. 


With the decline of visitors to Civil War historic sites due to political climates, the rising cost of maintenance that a National Historical Landmark requires has been a struggle and it is more important now than ever that we receive assistance from the public to preserve Beauvoir for future generations.


We have several projects that we are currently working on and need financial assistance with:













Mr. Jessie Sanford, Facilities Chair and Secretary of the Board of Directors, has been working with our Chief Operating Officer and the Maintenance Staff on all of our projects and if you have any questions or would like to make a donation towards any of the repairs needed on Beauvoir, the Hayes Cottage or the Perimeter Fence, you can contact him by email at


Without your help, Beauvoir would cease to exist. We greatly appreciate your assistance in helping us preserve our beloved historic treasure for future generations.
