I am Anne Tidmore, a proud Southerner and the present Regent of the White House of the Confederacy, one of the premier landmarks of Montgomery, Alabama.
The First White House of the Confederacy was the executive residence of President Jefferson Davis and family while the capital of the Confederate States of America was in Montgomery, Alabama. Completely furnished with original period pieces from the1850s and 1860s, the 1835 Italianate style house is open to the public. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974.
The house served as the first White House of the Confederacy from February 1861 until late May 1861, when the Confederate capital moved to Richmond, Virgina.
Free to the public, I want to personally invite you to come and visit the First White House of the Confederacy whenever you are in Montgomery. We are open 8 AM to 4:30 PM Monday-Friday except on state holidays.

We look forward to seeing you.
