A look at Civil War Corinth -

— through the eyes of wartime artists and photographers —

One of Corinth's founders, surveyor Hamilton Mask, built this Greek Revival home in 1857, pictured above as it appeared about 1862. It became known as the "Verandah House" because of its porches and served as headquarters for both Union and Confederate officers. William P. Curlee, whose name it now bears, bought the property in 1875. Except for minor changes, it appears today much as it did in 1862. You are invited to tour the house during its open hours.

During the war high-ranking officers customarily occupied private homes for use as dwellings and headquarters. The generals pictured above occupied the Curlee House at different times in 1862.
