Signficant Architectural Features:
The famous General and ladies man of the Confederacy, P.G.T. Beauregard once lived in the house. The house is perhaps more well known because of the twin bay windows which curve out symmetrically from each side of the massive entrance. The house is of stucco over a solid brick wall almost 2 feet thick. Built by James Simmons in 1760, the house was later owned by Governor Robert Gibbes.
