Your Vicksburg tour isn't complete without visiting the historic McNutt House for a fun and informative guided tour. Like so much of Vicksburg, the McNutt House is rich in history. Built in 1826, the structure is the second oldest in the Historic Downtown District and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in addition to designations as Mississippi and Warren County landmarks. It was acquired by Alexander Gallatin McNutt (Mississippi’s 12th Governor) in 1829 who subsequently added the rear wing in 1832. McNutt is remembered for repudiating bank bonds, signing legislation permitting women to own property and establishment of a university in Oxford, MS referred to as “Ole Miss”. The main floor contains beautiful coal burning fireplaces, family heirloom period furnishings and a variety of vintage and antique curios. Your guided tour includes the history of the house, former residents, our permanent resident Lt. David Weeks Magill and of course the “Little Girl in the Blue Dress” made famous in a featured segment of A&E’s “My Ghost Story”. The house is just 3 blocks from the Old Courthouse Museum and the new Lower Mississippi River Museum.
