Burt-Stark Mansion

Built in the late 1830s by Judge David Leslie, the Burt house was the site of the last Confederate war council. On May 2, 1865, less than a month after Lee's surrender at Appomattox, the war council of the Confederate forces met with President Jefferson Davis and formally disbanded the armies. A National Historic Landmark, the house contains Stark family antiques, furniture used by Jefferson Davis.
