Location and History
Built by John Alexander Klein, Cedar Grove Mansion was presented in 1840 to his bride, Elizabeth, General Sherman's cousin. The impressive fifty-room mansion was completed eighteen years later to become the largest and most beautiful estate in Vicksburg. During the Civil War, it was used by Sherman as a military hospital and still has a Union cannonball embedded in the parlor wall. The home has also been visited by many notables, including Jefferson Davis and General Grant. Cedar Grove has been lovingly restored by the dedicated efforts of present owners Ted Mackey and Estelle Mackey.
Cedar Grove is conveniently located two miles north of Interstate 20. Take the Washington Street exit (1A), at the Mississippi River Bridge.
