Warm hospitality awaited visitors who stopped into buildings from the Southern states.
Both the Mississippi and Tennessee buildings were true homes of the South. The Mississippi building was built to replicate 'Beauvoir,' the last home of Confederate president, Jefferson Davis. Its wide verandas and doors welcomed visitors for tea.
The Tennessee building was adapted from the design of the Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson's home. Jackson's granddaughter, at the age of 76, acted as hostess in this building.
