History buffs should be sure to visit the Sam Davis Home and Museum. Davis was a Confederate soldier during the Civil War and was executed when he refused to disclose information about messages he was carrying. His home was built on the banks of Stewarts Creek in 1810 and has been renovated only once. The home sits on 160 acres of land and you can enjoy tours that will walk you through the story of Davis’ life. The home has nine rooms in total, as well as slave quarters to tour and learn from located at the back of the property.
