c. 1830. Tour one of Vicksburg’s most historic antebellum homes. With humble beginnings as a wood framed pioneer home, Anchuca was built in 1830 by J.W. Maulding. Victor Wilson, a coal and ice merchant, completed the Greek revival structure we see today in 1847. Wealthy Joseph E. Davis, patriarchal brother to President Jefferson Davis, CSA and owner of the magnificent Warren Co. plantation, Hurricane, died here in 1870. Most notably the balcony was the site where Jefferson Davis greeted neighbors and friends while visiting his brother in 1869. This Greek revival landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Come see the opulent interiors with fine antiques and art representing the past three centuries. Be sure to dine at Cafe' Anchuca.
