Located on North State Street, it was built by Wester Millsaps, the founder of Millsaps College, who served in the Confederate Army and rose to the rank of major in 1864.

Buckley, Jr. Famous Mississippi author John Grisham was a guest at the time his earliest books were becoming popular. He was in Jackson on unfinished legal business and graciously autographed his books. A few years later, the home was rented for two weeks when scenes from the movie version of his book, “The Chamber,” were filed there.’
