Merrehope is a stately, 20-room Victorian mansion, restored and furnished by the Meridian Restorations Foundation, Inc. It features unusual woodwork and a handsome stairway, columns and mantels. Originally, part of the home was used as headquarters for Confederate General Leonidas Polk and was spared by Union General William T. Sherman. During the holidays, Merrehope hosts the popular "Trees of Christmas" Tour. 

The Frank W. Williams Home is located adjacent to Merrehope. As a major part of the Meridian Restorations Foundation, the Williams Home is an excellent example of Queen Anne Victorian architecture, with its stained glass, paneling, parquet floors and detailed gingerbread. Many original features and antique furnishings make the home one of Meridian’s top tourism sites.
