  Tour airliewood History Architecture Restoration
  Come experience rich history, amazing architecture and a warm welcome at Airliewood, built in 1858 just months before the Civil War visited Mississippi. Come hear the stories this house can tell. The Civil War played an important part in the history of Holly Springs and Airliewood. The town changed hands over 50 times as Union and Confederates fought over the strategic location. Airliewood hosted Union commanding general and future president Ulysses S. Grant. Airliewood is an outstanding example of Gothic Revival architecture. The design was popular in the east in the early 1800s and contrasts with the Greek Revival mansions built in Holly Springs and the South. The arched doorways and windows and ornate carved brackets illustrate the style. Airliewood experienced many alterations during its 148 years. The current owners have restored the mansion to its original grandeur, seeking to reconstruct the style that has made it a southern landmark. The project took three years to complete
