              Quarterly Meeting Program: The History of the White House of the Confederacy
The house was built on Court Hill by Mr. Brockenbrough. Mr. Crenshaw later purchased the home and added the third story and many other
embellishments including gas lighting. In May of 1861 Richmond became the capitol of the Confederacy, and the home was sold to the City of
Richmond for $35,000. The furnishings were sold for $7,000. Jefferson Davis and his family moved into the home soon after. The Confederacy
paid rent for the Executive Mansion to the City of Richmond. President Davis, his wife and 5 of their 6 children lived in the home for the next
four years. On April 5, 1865 Richmond fell to the Federal army. The Davis family fled the city 12 to 18 hours prior to its capture. President
Abraham Lincoln visited the home after his trip to Petersburg. For the next five years Federal troops occupied the home. The city of Richmond
retained ownership of the building after the troops left. Between 1870 and 1890, Richmond Central School used the building. After the school
closed the city of Richmond wanted to tear down the home. The Confederate Memorial Literary Society was formed to save it. It was purchased
by the Society and opened as a museum in 1896. The Society still owns the house and operates the museum today.

                           Benefit Auction – Thank You to Donors, Volunteers, and Attendees

On November 11, 2005 the historical society held its benefit auction at Wrexham Hall. What a wonderful evening! We enjoyed a silent auction, live
auction, music, food and fun with about 90 attendees. We raised about $13,000. We were very fortunate to receive the support of many individuals
and businesses in Chesterfield County and around the state. Many of our elected officials also donated items. We are listing those who donated and
hope that you will support them as they have supported us. A special thank you goes out to all those who donated, attended and supported the
Society. We had a wonderful committee who helped with the event and put in months of preparation and gathering items. We thank them for all
their hard work. If you or your business would like to donate an item for the 2006 auction please contact the society office at (804) 777-9663.
