Old Court House Museum


When Teddy Roosevelt came to Vicksburg, he visited the Old Court House. So did Jefferson Davis, Booker T. Washington, William McKinley, and U.S. Grant—and so should you. Vicksburg’s crown jewel both architecturally and historically, this National Landmark towers above the city on a hill hallowed by history. It was on these grounds that Jefferson Davis launched his political career; it was here on July 4, 1863 that the Stars and Stripes replaced the Stars and Bars, signifying the end to the 47-day siege. It has been a museum since 1948, filled with items reflecting the Southern Heritage, from pre-Columbian artifacts to fine portraits, furniture, china, silver, toys, tools, clothing and the largest collection of Civil War memorabilia in the South. Relics available in unique gift shop.
