Vicksburg, Mississippi

Vicksburg is located near the Mississippi/Louisiana border. It is the only city located in Warren County, Mississippi, along the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers. The population is about 26,500 residents.

Cedar Grove Mansion Bed and Breakfast Information:

Construction on the Cedar Grove Mansion commenced in the early 1840’s by Alexander Klein for his dream girl, Elizabeth Bartley Day. He built the mansion before he was able to marry Elizabeth, as she was 14 years younger than him. When they were married he was 30 and she was 16 years old. The mansion was completed in 1852.

The Battle at Vicksburg had an effect on the Cedar Grove Mansion which still has a cannon ball lodged in the parlor wall. During the Civil War Elizabeth was blacklisted somewhat in Vicksburg because she was related to General William T. Sherman.

The house was able to survive the Battle of Vicksburg primarily because it was used as a field hospital for Union soldiers, much like the Duff Green Mansion, also in Vicksburg.

Many of the furnishing today are original to the Cedar Grove Mansion.

Ghosts and the Paranormal at the Cedar Grove Mansion Bed and Breakfast in Vicksburg, Mississippi:

Guests who stay in the Queen Victoria Room have reported seeing the apparition of a woman who appears at night in front of the window on the right side of the room. The misty haze floats past the fireplace and then disappears into an area behind the bed.

Guests also report hearing disembodied footsteps pacing throughout the night until sunrise.
