If you’re planning to visit Vicksburg’s Old Courthouse Museum, venture across the street to explore the Bazsinsky House. The home was completed in 1861, just two years before the Siege of Vicksburg. Open daily, appointments recommended.
Two conflicting stories, one a 53-page handwritten family history, the other a researched account of documents events, address the property from as early as 1840. Both conclude that the structure, built by Joseph Bazsinsky as a town house, remained a home for his large Jewish family through four generations until early in the 21st Century. All major credit cards are accepted.
