Context/Comments
The Luckett Compound is a unique ensemble of buildings in downtown Vicksburg. A complex of three antebellum, vernacular Greek Revival buildings and a fourth newer building, the layout of the four buildings is unusual in that they apparently were separate structures designed for separate functions. The home of an early Vicksburg physician, perhaps some concepts of health care may have dictated the layout of this home. The lot was originally a full acre and was divided in the 1870s. The 2007 re-survey indicates that all four builidngs underwent complete re-hab in 2006 (fed. & state tax project). Included in Historic Vicksburg Walking Tour Guide (#21, p. 19).

Brief Description
A two-story, clapboard and brick Greek Revival residence, facing west, with an asphalt-covered gable roof. The L-shaped two-tiered gallery extends across the west and north facades. On the north this gallery is recessed under the main roof, and on the west it is covered by a shed roof with a plain cornice. The gallery is supported by square, wood columns on both tiers and the second story porch is enclosed with a plain balustrade. There are three bays on each floor a single-leaf, glazed door with sidelights and transom flanked by six-over-six, double-hung windows that are shuttered. Listed on the National Register in 1983. Ca. 1830s.
