Completed in 1853, the Cannonball House once served as the townhouse of a prominent planter before it eventually became one of the many architectural casualities of the Civil War. Today, the Cannonball House is managed by the United Daughters of the Confederacy?s Sidney Lanier Chapter and is part of the National Register of Historic Places. Boasting of exquisite Greek Revival designs, the house museum still contains many of its original furnishing and decor. Its collections include authentic Civil War officer?s uniforms, various types of artilleries, and company flags. At the back of the Cannonball House, visitors may also explore the property?s uniquely charming two-floor kitchen house, of which only a few of its kind exist in the South. Events are held regularly at the place, including re-enactments of weddings performed in the 1800?s.
