White House of the Confederacy reviews
We enjoyed the informative tour of the house. Our guide gave a good history of the house. Best part was the Exhibit in the basement on "The Lost Cause". Really explains a lot! more »
The home has been beautifully restored. The best part was Charlie, our guide, who was deeply knowledgeable and was interesting for every minute of the tour. Definitely a place for history lovers! Just park in the hospital/museum parking garage.
If you are touring Richmond you need to make time for the White House of The Confederacy. Charlie gave a very informative tour. Thanks Charlie! We enjoyed it!!!! (Find the parking deck and park there, don't waste time driving around trying to park on the street.)
