I can highly recommend this place to visit. It is full of history and background information at the museum and it's possible to go up the monument. The staff was exceptionell welcoming and helpful. more »
Went in December, the obelisk was closed for the winter. Docent was great and gave us a detailed history of the area including tobacco farming. more »
We stumbled across this monument on a cross country drive. We stopped in not knowing what it was but left out with a great experience and a plethora of historical knowledge. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a picnic lunch on the grounds and it was the perfect recharge before getting back on the road.
Jefferson Davis was the only president of the confederate South. As a keen historian with a long time interest in the civil war, this was a fascinating place. The fact that his grandfather Evan Davis was also from Wales made it even more interesting for us. The monument is hugely impressive and says a lot about the feelings in the south many years after the war was over. It was just a shame that the elevator was not working when we visited.
