Enjoyed our tour of the second oldest governor's mansion in the U.S on a rainy day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting.

We were taken around by a wonderful woman whose knowledge and the history of the place make this a must visit.. Word of caution we were strongly adviced by a number of people to take care whilst in Jackson. One even commented that she even goes armed when she takes her kids to hospital. This is a shame as its... 更多
