Mission Statement

The Oaks is owned by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Mississippi and operated by the Oaks House Museum Corporation, a nonprofit corporation committed to historic preservation and education.

The mission of The Oaks House Museum Corporation is to preserve and interpret the circa 1853 Oaks House, its collection, and grounds, to depict the life of a middle-class family on a mid-19th-century urban farmstead through the story of four-term Jackson mayor James Hervey Boyd, his wife Eliza Ellis Boyd, and their family, focusing on the years 1853 to 1863.
