Waverley Mansion is one of the most outstanding antebellum plantation homes in the South. After having been vacant for over 50 years, the Snow family purchased it and slowly and lovingly restored it to its original glory. It is furnished with outstanding antiques and features original mirrors, chandeliers, books, trunks, and other items. It can be reached by boat on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway or by car via Highway 50 from either West Point or Columbus. The most amazing feature is the 65 foot high entrance hall crowned by an octagonal cupola. Listed on The National Register of Historic Buildings and A National Historic Landmark, the property was recently listed on the Civil War Trail.

I love old houses and their history, and I have wanted to visit Waverley for a long time. The house is remarkable, with a very nice collection of furnishings. The tour guide was knowledgeable and very entertaining. We have visited and toured many, many houses...More

Great food, prompt and courteous service in a phenomenal atmosphere in ridiculously high ceilings. I swear you could wear nice shorts or a tux in this place.

Fun stop for a couple hours. The history of the mansion and the beautiful furniture inside are worth the trip. Go early in day or later in afternoon Mississippi humidity tough in July.

Red about the place before you visit. It's like spending 2 hours in the mid to late 1800's. Wonderful visit with a well spoken and knowledgeable tour guide. The house is in need of continued restoration, however, once you look past the small details, you...More

Enjoyed the tour of the home. Listening to the young man telling the history of the home was worth the $10 price of admission. We learned He graduated from Delta State with a Degree in History and we really enjoyed our time talking with him....More
