616 North 14th Street, Oxford, Mississippi 38655, United States

Learn the compelling story of one man’s surprising impact on a scarred country, the story of Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar. As Oxford rose from the ashes, L.Q.C. Lamar prepared to become a statesman in this house while he reflected on defeat and resolved to work for reconciliation between North and South. Later it became Senator Lamar’s retreat from the demands of Washington. His beautifully restored 1870 home graces three acres within Oxford’s North Lamar Historic District, walking distance from the Oxford Square. Professional exhibits present Lamar’s life against the backdrop of secession, war, and reunion. The 1870 house was declared a National Historic Landmark for Lamar’s role in national politics after the Civil War.
