Windsor Ruins near Port Gibson, Mississippi - TRIED to find this place & couldnt. So disappointed

Windsor was built in 1859 by Smith Daniell who only lived there for a few weeks before dying at the age of 34. With 25 rooms each having their own fireplace, the property also included 2600 acres of the surrounding land. Also, the home was frequented by Mark Twain who enjoyed watching the Mississippi River roll by from the top observatory. Tragically in 1890, a guest left a lighted cigar on the balcony and the home burned to the ground - in Port Gibson. More pictures on Instagram…
