House Suites & Tour Home Circa 1826, 1832
The McNutt House (circa 1826) is among the oldest homes in Vicksburg, offering guest rooms, suites with a kitchen, and venues for banquets, receptions, rehearsal dinners, and parties of all kinds. The lovely tranquil terraced courtyard with a large deck overlooking the gardens and patios is an ideal setting for relaxing after a long day or as a venue for a garden wedding, significant social, company picnic, reunion, and other events.

About the McNutt House
Built-in 1826, the McNutt House is among the very oldest antebellum homes in Vicksburg, conveniently located in the Historic Downtown District just minutes from the National Military Park and in walking distance to the Old Courthouse Museum, the new Railroad Museum, and Lower Mississippi River Museum, other antebellum homes, riverfront, numerous eateries, city events, and entertainment. Alexander Gallatin McNutt (Mississippi's 12th Governor) purchased the house in 1829 and added the rear wing in 1832. He and his wife (Betsy) lived in the house during his terms in the State Senate leading up to his election as Governor. McNutt was considered one of the great speakers during many great orators and a strong proponent for banking reform. The main floor contains beautiful original coal-burning fireplaces, Family antique period furnishings in addition to antique and vintage curios and letters. McNutt's living quarters, his former personal office, and the spare guest bedroom now accommodate guests as Suites with well-equipped kitchens, each with a private bath. See the Suites page for views, amenities, and rates.
About the Magill House
The Magill House is situated at the courtyard base and named our permanent guest Lt. David Weeks Magill, a wealthy 21-year-old Louisiana plantation owner, and Confederate Artillery Officer. They perished on June 4, 1863, on-site during the Siege of Vicksburg. His is the only known Confederate soldier's grave outside of the Confederate Cemetery in Vicksburg. A front porch spans the length of the building facing a large patio and our lovely courtyard. The house contains 3 Guest Rooms (two with kitchenettes), each with a private bath. A common area at the center of the building is available for guest use containing a fully equipped kitchen and adjoining complimentary laundry room.
