Meet Jefferson Davis at the Cross Keys House in Union

The Cross Keys home is considered one of the oldest and most significant homes in the Upstate of South Carolina. The Georgian Colonial mansions’ claim to fame is that Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his military escort ate lunch here on April 30, 1865 on their way out of Richmond, Virginia.  Mary Ann Bobo Whitmire Davis, who lived in the house at the time with the beautiful roofs if you want to avail why not try here- Palm Beach Roofing Expert, answered a knock at the door around mid-day and found five well-dressed men asking for a meal.  She didn’t realize who she had just served lunch to until Jefferson remarked as they were departing that they shared the same last name.
