The construction of the Ammadelle mansion in Oxford, Mississippi was very unfortunate. Although the house now stands magnificently in its red brick Italianate architecture glory, it can?t be denied that the hard times affected it.
The rear end of the building was never finished, causing it to lose the balconies at the back area and the intended wine cellar, because of the Civil War.

Designed by the critically acclaimed architect Calvert Vaux, the Ammadelle is believed to aptly represent the Mississipian elite, who were able to keep abreast with the latest architectural trends. The house is the only Southern work of Vaux and is personally considered by the professional to be one of his finest works.

The Ammadelle was declared as a National Historic Landmark in 1974.
