Beauvoir, 200 West Beach Road, Biloxi, Harrison County, MS
Significance: From 1877 until his death, this was the residence of Jefferson Davis (1808-1889), President of the Confederacy. Davis spent the last twelve years of his life at Beauvoir writing The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government, which was in part a summation of his life. Beauvoir is an example of the "raised cottage", which takes advantage of the Gulf winds to provide the house with natural ventilation.
