Experience the history of a surviving pre Civil War townhome located blocks away from the banks of the mighty Mississippi River in historic Vicksburg — the city that determined the turning point of the Civil War and the fate of our nation.

Open for tours Monday — Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Anchuca has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests from around the world since its debut as the first “home of historic significance” to open its doors “for public inspection” (The Sunday Post-Herald,” November 27, 1955) in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

A standard tour of Anchuca includes a 10-minute orientation film that highlights the history of the home followed by a self-guided tour of the home and grounds. On your tour you’ll see exhibits from the home’s colorful past including authentic Civil War artillery fragments found in the home’s attic, glass bottles and Civil War infantry ammunitions recovered from the property, the original 1830s skeleton keys passed down by each of the home’s owners, relevant historic photographs, maps, letters, and so much more.

After your tour of the home, explore surrounding “Old Town” Vicksburg: the town’s earliest commercial and residential area complete with brick streets, gas lanterns, and stately live oaks. Here you’ll find world class museums, historic walking trails, churches, antique shops, art galleries, and so much more.

Tours of Anchuca are $10 per person and group rates are available. For overnight guests, tours are included with your stay!
