Confederate President Jefferson Davis was a friend of the Williams family and was a guest in this c.1856 house. It is reported that some of his personal effects were stored in the Williams House during the Civil War. The house was part of the Underground Railroad for runaway slaves. The secret room used for that purpose is still in existence. It is now operated as a bed and breakfast inn.
