Spring Pilgrimage Gloucester – Built 1803

Serene Suburban Villa and Scene of a Murder

Quick Details

Built in 1803 by Samuel C. Young and named Bellevue, the home was sold four years later to Winthrop Sargent (1753-1820), the first governor of the Mississippi Territory. In 1807, Sargent extended the home’s square footage and renamed it after his hometown of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The Governor’s son, George W. Sargent, was murdered inside by Union Forces during the War Between the States. Double hallways and stairs of hand-turned mahogany rails and spindles grace the interior.
