  Beauregard-Keyes House

The Beauregard-Keyes House is a fascinating old raised cottage built in 1826. The house changed hands many times until 1925 when it was threatened with demolition. The fact that Confederate General Pierre G. T. Beauregard lived here after the Civil War aroused the interest of a group of patriotic ladies. They were able to save the house from destruction.
In 1944, the well-known author Frances Parkinson Keyes rented the house and eventually took it over from the ladies' group. A number of her fifty-one books were written here.
