A really neat historic site in the Alabama state capital of Montgomery that you can visit for free. This was the home Jefferson Davis lived in as President of the Confederacy during the first few months the capital of the Confederacy was located in Montgomery. A few months after the Confederacy formed the capital moved from Montgomery, AL to Richmond, VA. You can explore all the main parts of the house including the upstairs.

If you're down in Montgomery you should know its free to walk around and explore the inside of this building. I'm really glad we made a stop here. The staff inside the building are super friendly and welcoming to visitors. When you first walk inside you pass through a small and quick security point with a metal detector and bag check. Be sure to really check out the interior of the rotunda while inside. It makes for great photos and has a lot of cool murals painted on it.

Wow! We visited the mansion and what a wonderful time to share with our family! The attraction is free, so no worries for a large family or a family with lots of friends. The tours are only on the Mondays in December so make sure to take off work to enjoy lots of time together. The gift shoppe - across the street - is where you will pick up your free tickets. Also, spend some time looking at the cute little shoppe with lots of treasures to take home.
