    Completed in 1852, Jefferson Davis while looking for a quiet retreat to write his books and papers in 1877 rented a pavilion at Beauvoir House. Falling in love with the property agreed to purchase the property and agreed on paying the $5,500 purchase price in 3 installments. Shortly after making the first payment the owner died at which time Davis found out he was the sole heir to Beauvoir and other property. Davis lived at Beauvoir until his death in 1889, when the house passed to his daughter and wife his wife Varna. Mrs. Davis sold Beauvoir to the Mississippi Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and was used as a no charge property for Confederate Veterans and their widows until 1957 when sold with the stipulation that it was to be used as a "memorial to Jefferson Davis and the Confederate Soldier".
