The White House of the Confederacy, also located in Richmond, is the restored house that served as the executive mansion for President Jefferson Davis and his family during the war. Guided tours take the visitor through period rooms resplendent in Rococo-revival furniture, flocked wallpaper, silk upholstery, and Brussels carpeting. Robert E. Lee was a frequent visitor to the mansion, and Abraham Lincoln made a brief visit after the fall of Richmond.
