Stevens Auction Company is delighted to announce the estate auction of Miss Isabel Person, of Port Gibson, Mississippi. Miss Isabel was an avid lover of life, her family and community. She never left her home without being impeccably dressed—a true Southern belle.

Miss Isabel lived almost all of her 93 years on Church Street, in a home built circa 1880 in the late Victorian Style. The home was purchased by Miss Isabel’s father, J.W. Person II. Over the years, it became a repository for the family’s antique furniture, books, chests, clothes, silver, china, artifacts, papers and financial records, among other timeless items. There are 6 bedrooms, grand parlors, living rooms, dining rooms, breakfast rooms, offices, porches, and of course, a 2,000-square foot attic filled with historic treasures. The house was adorned with wonderful objects from all over the world, many of which will be offered at auction. For more information on Miss Isabel’s family, please click here: History of house.
