Well preserved historical 1800's house. If you want to see the living spaces of the upper class in Vicksburg, during the Civil War period, you will find this suitable. If you are not so interested in antebellum homes, this might not be so much for you.

You go there thinking you are going to take a tour of a old house, but all you see is 2 rooms and a guy talks for an hour and then charges you $15.00

The McNutt House is beautiful and well taken care of. The owners seem to take pride in their property. The house is clean and bright. It's surprisingly small (just three rooms) and the history is interesting as told by the current owner. The attached garden and patio areas are really pretty.

We toured this house while in Vicksburg for a girls' get away weekend. The tour guide was very interesting and shared great stories of the homes' history. The home is also a bed and breakfast. We really enjoyed our tour!

This is a location you should visit. The tour is interesting, well done and gives you insights you might not otherwise have into Vicksburg and the old south. I highly recommend

Four of us, from England, have just taken the tour of this delightful establishment. The owner, Elvin, has a great store of tales about the owners of the house, from the time of Alexander McNutt to his and his wife's own. For over an hour he kept us enthralled with the history of the house and the life and times... More

My husband and I visited here during our last trip to Vicksburg. Once in the afternoon and again that night on the ghost tour. Both tours were very interesting. Lots of history and spooky stories. On the ghost tour we got a picture of what we believe was the little girl in the blue dress. I forgot her name, but... More

Our one hour tour was rich in the history of the building, its contents and the delightful outdoor gardens. Call first to arrange a very personal tour by the owner

We had to call to get a tour, we called last minute (literally) and were still able to get in for a tour with the owner. The owner was SO SUPER NICE. I felt bad because I didn't know people actually lived there. I thought it was just a museum house. So they were still taking down Christmas decorations but... More

October 2013: We came across the house whilst passing by and although we had not made an appointment the owner had no qualms in providing a tour straight away which was nice. (Although I would suggest to pre book to avoid disappointment). What an enjoyable hour! He tells the house and its previous owners stories with great enthusiasm and also... More
