Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, The Beauregard-Keyes House was built in 1826 and is a fine example of a raised center hall house. It is named for two of its former residents, Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant (P.G.T.) Beauregard and author Frances Parkinson Keyes.

In August 1944, the entire second floor was rented to author Frances Parkinson Keyes, who used the home as her winter residence for 25 years until her death in 1970.  During her tenancy, she also undertook intensive restoration of the property and eventually secured its transfer to a foundation to ensure its future.

Mrs. Keyes wrote many of her books while living in the house, including Dinner at Antoine’s,The Chess PlayersMadame Castel’s Lodger and Blue Camellia- All of which are available in our Gift Shop as well as right here at Big Cartel! If you have any interest in a specific title please contact us.

In addition to public tours, the house and garden are available for private events, including weddings, receptions and parties.
