Rosemont Plantation/ Home of Jefferson Davis

Highway 24, Woodville, MS 39669, USA

Built by his parents in 1810, this was the family home of President Jefferson Davis until 1895. Many articles of furniture and family portraits of the Davis family are still in the home. Rosemont is the headquarters of the Davis Family Association, and reunions are held there biannually. The home is an early "cottage style" planter's home. Five generations of Davis's family lived here. His mother Jane Davis is buried in the family cemetery on the grounds.
