Built for John Alexander Klein in 1840, Cedar Grove is a good example of Greek Revival domestic design. The house, located on a terrace overlooking the Mississippi River, is a five-bay, brick structure with three-bay porticoes on the east and west elevations. Its original four-over-four form was expanded with later side wings. Among its notable features is the original landscape design complete with terracotta statuary, cast iron gazebo, brick walks, and fountains fed from an elevated cistern.

This house is included in "Historic Architecture in Mississippi" (1973) (pp. 67-68), "Great Houses of Mississippi" (2004) (pp.31-33), and "Buildings of Mississippi" (2020) (p.80, YB23).[HABS: MS-129 (1936)]
