State paying $737,000 to repair Confederate White House





MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The state is paying more than $737,000 to renovate the First White House of the Confederacy, a state-owned historical site that has been closed since repair work began in July.

Officials with the White House Association of Alabama, which is dedicated to preserving the property, expect it to reopen early next year in time for the February observance of Jefferson Davis' inauguration as president of the Confederacy.
