AAA Editor Notes

Sam Davis Home and Plantation is at 1399 Sam Davis Rd. The restored mid-19th-century frame structure was the residence of the 21-year-old Confederate who chose death rather than a pardon when he refused to identify an informant after being captured behind Union lines.

Museum, historic house and grounds $12; $10 (ages 65+); $6 (ages 6-12 and students with ID). Phone ahead to confirm admission.
