The First White House of the Confederacy- Montgomery, AL

While I was in Montgomery, I stumbled upon many gems that I didn’t realize were there, and one was this interesting piece of American History: The First White House of the Confederacy.  Jefferson Davis and his family were the first and only Confederate Presidential Family to live in this house.  The home is filled with furniture from the period, artifacts from the Civil War, and a lot of Davis’s personal items.

The house was built in 1835, and was rented (completely furnished) for $5,000 a month.  It only served as the White House of the Confederacy for about three months.
