George Washington Ball House

According to land records, George Washington Ball, a well-to-do, distant cousin of our first president, built this Federal style house about 1822, making it one of the largest homes in "Old Town" Vicksburg at the time. In fact, Ball's neighbors included the early founders of Vicksburg.


The house was unrecognizable, obscured by additions and neglect, and its history untold for nearly a century until it was fully restored in 2004.


Today the George Washington Ball House, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has regained its place of prominence in Old Town. Whether spending a relaxing weekend or hosting an elegant event, guests will enjoy their time in historic Vicksburg.
