A couple of months ago, the people that run the Jefferson Davis Home in Biloxi clashed over how they should run the property. After a fall out amongst the administration, there is now a new man in charge at the Jefferson Davis Home in Biloxi. Greg Stewart, the new Director of the Beauvoir, says, "It’s been a challenge. There’s a lot to be done." Stewart says he plans to display old property artifacts and establish a lecture series. Despite the controversy surrounding Christmas at Beauvoir earlier this year, he says the popular attraction will return.

Stewart also says, "It will continue. The committee started meeting again last week. We would welcome anyone who wants to join and be a part of that." Stewart says he plans to return to tradition without all the glitz and glamour. In addition, he plans to do it without alcohol, making it more family friendly. Stewart also says, "It was from the reading of my records, they lost a quarter of a million dollars over two years." Christmas at the Beauvoir is one of the biggest events on the Gulf Coast. Stewart plans on putting the faith back into the event.

Stewart closes, “We want to put a little more of Christ back in the Beauvoir and invite all of the churches to come and participate with their choirs.” He plans to bring a living nativity scene and lower the ticket prices to make the event more affordable. Stewart is looking forward to the new, more family friendly environment that he plans to bring the Beauvoir.
