This is a great house you do not want to miss. Have you been visiting a lot of homes and this one appears to be closed? You need to call 601-831-7007 and make an appointment to see the home. The tour is given by the owner Mr. Longfellow who purchased the house in 1983 and has restored it beautifully. Yes,... More

If you like to tour historic homes, don't miss the Martha Vick house, built in 1830 by the daughter of the founder of Vicksburg. Bill Longfellow has owned the house since the early 80's, and has done extensive restoration. He gives an entertaining and informative tour of the house and its furnishings. There are also interesting pictures of the restoration.... More

Do call ahead. The owner may be at a wedding. If you just show up and ring the bell, you may very well not be in luck. During a loving restoration many of the home's original pieces were returned to the walls; they belonged no where else, truly. Stunning collection of French oils. Owner guided; depth.

Owner Bill Longfellow gives tours of this very historic house, former home to members of the Vick family for whom Vicksburg is named. The house is chock-a-block full of spectacular antiques, and the tours are fascinating for anyone with so much as a passing interest in the history of the area and of early times in Vicksburg. The Martha Vick... More

We saw this house listed in the Vicksburg visitor information booklet and called the owner about a tour. The tour is $10 per person and lasts about 45 minutes. We enjoyed the owner's stories about the house and furnishings and Vicksburg history. Take the opportunity to tour this house if you are visiting Vicksburg. The owner is an older gentleman... More
