The Confederate Hero Gate.

Sam Davis Grave, Home, Museum

The Sam Davis Home's grounds take you back in time. There is the main house, slave quarters, smoke house and grave site. All of this sits on 160 acres. Tours begin every hour on the hour but if you go to the visitor center first they will let you self-tour the grounds (aside from the main house) for free. If you are a history buff it is well worth a stop.
