|Facility:||Manship House Museum|
|Description:||The Manship House Museum interprets the daily life of an interesting nineteenth-century Mississippi family through the house the family lived in for so many years. Until its acquisition by the state of Mississippi in 1975, the Manship House had been continuously occupied by members of the Manship family since its construction in 1857.
One of the few examples of Gothic-Revival residential architecture in Mississippi, the Manship House was inspired by a design in A.J. Downing's Architecture of Country Houses, a popular nineteenth-century pattern book in which an almost identical house is pictured.
