Save this old house ~ a c.1830 historic Greek Revival called the Captain Kain House.

This amazing home was built in the center of a huge 1787 Spanish land grant conveyed by Charles III to the Kain family of Bannockburnhame, Scotland, just five years after the city of Vicksburg was incorporated in 1825. The Kain family were steamboat pilots.

You may know that Vicksburg is built on a promontory high above the Mississippi River, and was heavily defended during the Civil War. The house itself took three direct mortar hits from the U.S. Navy.

If any house is haunted, this would be the one. It was used as a hospital and morgue and later as a stable and slaughterhouse. The property is said to be a massive unmarked graveyard.

More recently, the building sat vacant for seven years before being converted into one-bedroom apartment rentals. In 2007 it was foreclosed on and purchased, rescued and restored as a private residence. Designated as a Vicksburg landmark in 2010, the house is approved for business as well as residential use. Maybe a  B&B or tour house?
