Property description

Constructed in 1831, Richard Featherston, a teacher, built a single story structure here and opened Vicksburg's first school. Dr. Alex Magruder, the great grandson of an indentured servant who arrived in Virginia from Scotland in 1653 expanded the house to two stories in 1850 and used the original as a clinic where he treated victims of the 1853 Yellow Fever Outbreak that killed half the population. Sold in 1869 to Nathaniel Thomas, the house was later owned by Tom Morrissey, a steamboat captain and liquor dealer. Built by slaves in the Greek Revival style, the house was remodeled with Italianate features.This Antebellum mansion, once linked to a plantation on the outskirts of Vicksburg, was most recently updated in 2000.

Located at the epicenter of Southern history, the property has easy access to the Civil War national park, a number of historic plantations, as well as a variety of authentic American activities.

The home is one of the first Italianate architecture homes in the US. The home is decorated with period pieces from 1850s and still feels homey despite its 19th century grandeur.

It is surrounded by a range of historic sites dating from the late 1600s thru to the civil rights period of the 1960s such as the Civil War and Natchez Trace National Parks. The property is adjacent to the county jail, as well as to the old courthouse which was where Ulysses S. Grant accepted the surrender of the Confederate Army on July 4th, 1863.

The estate has its own private pool as well as five updated bathrooms with large showers. There are separate caretakers' quarters. The property is situated in the middle of Vicksburg, high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River Valley, and is within walking distance to many historical sites, restaurants and blues clubs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Vicksburg, MS, USA:
The history of the American South is one of the most important to the development of American Culture, from slavery to Civil Rights. As such, this historically and architecturally significant property provides a perfect means by which to experience the Deep South from a base in Vicksburg, Mississippi, a city whose geographical location along the Mississippi River put it at the center of the cotton industry, the Mississippi Waterway Trade, the economic development of the North, the removal of Native Americans, French and Spanish Colonialism, the Civil War, the Klu Klux Klan, and the Civil Rights struggle for African Americans.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The sweeping staircase and grand parlors, as well as the decorative architectural elements have made this National Historic Register home a rare survivor of time. The rafters still are charred from a roof fire in the Civil War, but the building remains intact and updated. There is a marble fireplace in every room.
