This tour focuses on Vicksburg’s oldest historic neighborhood, stopping first at Christ Episcopal Church, with its Tiffany stained-glass windows to hear stories of those who experienced the 47-day siege. As the tour continues with a short downhill walk, you can experience the “melting pot” of America, as viewed through the architectural influences of the neighborhood. You will receive a dose of Southern charm from the locals you meet along the way. Finally, tour one of the neighborhood’s most historic Antebellum Mansions where the owners, sixth generation Mississippians, will guide you through its remarkable history. See the scars of the War embedded in walls and floors as you walk through the opulent interiors. This tour lasts approximately 2-1/2 hours.Call or Email Us
