The Jefferson Davis Presidential Library is a library and museum in Mississippi with the purpose of preserving, housing and making available, the papers, records, artifacts and other historical materials of Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis. Despite its name it is not an official Presidential Library, as Davis was never President of the United States. It is, however, supported by the State of Mississippi, as declared on a plaque at the entrance.
The library is located at 2244 Beach Boulevard in Biloxi, Mississippi, on the 51-acre (210,000 m2) grounds of Davis's last home, Beauvoir. Renovation of the former Presidential Library was deemed impossible and a completely new building is being erected. In the meantime, the Bill Beckwith statue of Davis that once graced the rotunda of the library silently stands guard over its "reconstruction" near the entrance to the site, with a new statue by noted Civil War artist Gary Casteel having been added in 2009.
