COTESWORTH: The Historical Home of James Zachariah (J. Z.) George
In 1847, Carroll County, Mississippi, lawyer and future U.S. Senator James Zachariah (J. Z.) George purchased several hundred acres of rolling farmland, including a roadside inn. He enlarged the structure into a stunning Greek Revival mansion and named it “Cotesworth” for his friend, Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Cotesworth Pinckney Smith. In the late 1880s, he added a landmark hexagonal library on the south lawn to house his vast collection of law books.
