Inscription.  This Georgian Revival home was designed by architect Bem Price and built by Isaac C. Garber in 1913, for Mary D. (Terrell) and Thad B. Lampton, prominent businessman and banker who served as the state treasurer under Governor Longino. The estate originally featured formal gardens and servants quarters, one of which later served as the Millsaps College Chi Omega house. Here in 1927, a group of women organized the Jackson Junior Auxiliary (which in 1940 became the Junior League of Jackson), with Helen Lampton Lowe as its first president.
