NOW OPEN!

 

The Jefferson Davis Presidential Library is a state of the art architecturally beautiful building that will feature exhibits and events focused on the life of Jefferson Davis.   The Library reflects both the stature of the Beauvoir house framed with columns similar to the porch.   Contained in the design are the unusual ratios that reflect Davis’ height, six feet, and the number of states, thirteen.   Through the inside of the building are large galleries and clean lines that represent a modern design.

The Beauvoir room is a large multi-use room that can be used for both meetings and events.  It will feature a state of the art audio visual capacity and flexible seating.  This arrangement will allow the Library to accommodate meetings of up to 200 people in a comfortable atmosphere. 

The gift store offes a larger collection of both books and items that reflect both the Presidential stature and the accomplishments of Jefferson Davis and the property.  Included in this are gifts that are attached directly to Beauvoir through materials or the craftsman.  The expanded space will also be able to provide a reading area.

Using clear cypress and stainless steel panels the Library halls, provide an open and bright opening to the large galleries.  Two galleries will hold numerous exhibits and offer flexibility for traveling and rotating opportunities as they are developed.

Also included is a Library that  holds the research materials that were secured from the first building.  In addition, there are artifacts and donations that have been made to the Library after Katrina to include flags, books, papers  and other artifacts.

This building is a destination for events focused on Jefferson Davis and the Confederate Soldier and the many aspects of thier lives.  Currently on display are artifacts connected to the daily life of the Confederate Soldier-weapons, clothing, a field habitat/shelter display, as well as The Beauvoir Soldier's Home flag, and a display of fine art prints in the rotating gallery area.
