Thought to be the oldest standing house in Jackson, this handsome residence was built by James Hervey Boyd, Jackson's three-time mayor during the 1850s. Now owned by the National Society of Colonial Dames of America, the museum is furnished with period furniture throughout, including a sofa from Abraham Lincoln's law office in Springfield, Illinois. The guided tour takes about half an hour and costs $3 for adults, $2 for students and $1 for kids; group rates are also available.
