In 1831, Richard Featherston, a teacher,
built a single story structure here and
opened Vicksburg's first school. Dr. Alex
Magruder expanded the house to two stories
in 1850 and used the original as a clinic
where he treated victims of the 1853
Yellow Fever Outbreak that killed half the
population. Sold in 1869 to Nathaniel
Thomas, the house was later owned by
Tom Morrissey, a steamboat captain
and liquor dealer. Built by slaves in the
Greek Revival style, the house was
remodeled with Italianate features.
