607 3rd Street South
Built in 1843 by James Walton Harris, Whitehall was originally designed as a two-story Greek Revival townhouse. This stately mansion exhibits six paneled square columns at the edge of a wooden porch. The banisters bordering the porch consist of identically-milled hardwood balusters. Inside, heart pine floors and handsome woodwork provide the background for the Boggess’ collection of 18th and 19th century antiques.

1523 9th Street South
This home is considered one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Mississippi. Rosedale’s colorful, design perfect interior is often the subject of articles and reviews. The home has recently undergone extensive restoration.

1219 3rd Avenue North
Named after the stately Magnolia tree in the front lawn, this Greek Revival house was built in 1853. The front door opens to a luxuriously wide hallway that runs from the front door to the back of the house, a unique characteristic of the historic “double shotgun” style home. Downstairs, the study and master suite on one side of the hall and music room and dining room flanking the other are filled with art and antiques. In 1900, the mayor of Columbus, David McClanahan, purchased the home and incorporated the old kitchen house into the main structure. He also enlarged the house for his wife and ten children and included a secret compartment in the master bedroom where he hid his liquor from his teetotaling wife!
circa 1853 / Pete and Lee Tortorici.
