Fun Fact: Beauvoir (circa 1848-1851), located in Biloxi, Mississippi, is the retirement home of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America. The compound consisted of approximately 608 acres when Davis lived there (today, the site is approximately 52 acres in size). The name “Beauvoir” means “beautiful to view.” The home faces the Gulf of Mexico and Spanish moss hangs from many of the large old trees on the property.

Beauvoir and the Jefferson Davis Presidential Library suffered heavy damage from Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005. These two structures can and will be restored given time and funding. However, the Library pavilion (where Jefferson Davis penned “The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government”), the Hayes cottage, Soldier’s Home Barracks replica, Confederate Soldier’s Museum, Giftshop, and director’s home were totally destroyed. Replicas of those buildings totally destroyed will be built after the restoration of Beauvoir House and Presidential Library are complete. Prior to Katrina, the Jefferson Davis Presidential Library maintained a collection of 12,000 books on United States history, southern history, and history of the American Civil War. The library also maintained collections of photographs, personal letters, manuscripts, envelopes, postcards, newspaper clippings, records of Confederate heritage organizations such as the United Confederate Veterans and the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and records from the Veterans home that once was present on the grounds. Many of these records survived, and the salvageability of the collections stands at about sixty percent.
