Deupree’s Historic Homes: Mount Salus

The building is fashioned after the style of the old English manor-houses: square built, with wide windows, broad, heavy doors, and solid floors. The doors bear the marks of spurs and bayonets made by Grant’s soldiers as they tried in vain to force their way into stores and mansion, when on the raid from Vicksburg to Jackson in 1863.
