Manship House

Description

Description

One of the few remaining antebellum houses in Jackson and a rare example of Gothic Revival architecture in Mississippi, the Manship House Museum is an architectural and historical treasure. Meticulously restored, the house offers a glimpse of the daily life of an interesting 19th-century middle-class family. Charles Henry Manship, a talented craftsman who served as mayor of Jackson during the Civil War, built the house for his family in 1857. Its unusual features include several examples of Manship”s wood-graining work, which transformed plain doors and mantels into fine marble and expensive wood. This museum offers a glimpse of middle-class family life in 1888.
