This is a Greek Revival mansion featuring original furnishings, domed ceilings, fluted columns and ornate friezes. A small cabin built in 1821 was enlarged 1843-61 as Gaineswood became the center of a 1,400-acre cotton plantation. Today the mansion comprises 6,215 square feet. Although subjected to periods of neglect and abandonment in the century following the Civil War, the property was later purchased by the state and restored to its 1861 appearance.
