The History of The Corners Mansion

The Corners Mansion, built in 1873 by John Alexander Klein, was given as a wedding gift to his daughter, Susan and her new husband Isaac Bonham. Susan lived in the home until 1917 and the house became apartments through both WWI and WWII.  A Doctor bought the home in 1959 for $5000, and renovated it back into a single family home.  The Ivy's raised their 4 children in the home and put it up for sale in 1985 so they could move closer to their grown children.  The Whitney's bought the house from the Ivy's  when they were passing through town on their way to Washington, DC from Dallas.  They made it into the Bed and Breakfast that it is today by adding 11 guest rooms and furninshing our now, 16 room Inn.  Macy and Joe moved to Vicksburg in 2006 and bought the property from Macy's mother.  They now are the Resident Owner's and Innkeepers of this 145+ year old property.  Macy will give a detailed tour after breakfast each morning that outlines the stories of Vicksburg and the Klein family.  Be sure to allow time in your travel plans to enjoy the rich history of our beautiful home.
