Driving Tour of Historic Raymond

Raymond, MS 39154, USA

The Raymond Driving Tour features three structures that stand as a reminder of the Battle of Raymond, fought outside this small community. The Raymond Courthouse, built 1857-59, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is an excellent example of Greek Revival architecture. It was used as a hospital for Union wounded following the six-hour Battle of Raymond. The tour also includes the Waverley Mansion, which was used as a temporary headquarters for Generals McPherson and Grant, and the Confederate cemetery.
