The Tour features many historical landmarks, some of which require an additional admission fee which may be purchased along with your Tour of Homes ticket.
Robert Toombs House
The home of Robert Toombs (1810-85), who was a pro-Union U.S. representative and U.S. senator, and then a Confederate general and Confederate secretary of state during the Civil War. The 19th-century period house is a state and national historic site, which features exhibits about the life of Toombs.
Constructed in 1869, this mansion was the focal point of an 1820s 3,000 acre cotton plantation that stretched as far as the eye could see in many directions. The home remains virtually unaltered. The site also contains a number of period out-buildings.
Washington Historical Museum
An 1857 house is home to the Washington Historical Museum. The museum boasts a large collection featuring Civil War relics, native American artifacts, and a recreation of 19th century home life.
Mary Willis Library
The Mary Willis Library was founded in 1888 by Dr. Francis T. Willis in memory of his daughter. Designed by architect Edmund Lind, the Victorian library features a Tiffany stained- glass window commemorating the life of Mary Willis.
