SPECIALTY TOUR EXPERIENCE
515 9th St N
Walk with Aidan Taylor, expert in historic preservation, as he guides small groups through one of the state’s best examples of period restoration. This is unique. Mississippi Landmark property, built with enslaved labor, features the original slave cabin, out kitchen, hardware, and a grouping of 20 ft solid wood columns. Temple Heights has been featured in the magazine Antiques, on HGTV’s Old Homes Restored, and was the home of Jane Fontaine, one of the founders of Decoration Day.
A very special addition to the tour is James Wagner displaying “Art on the Porch” at Temple Heights. Meet the talented artist and purchase one of his paintings for your home.
