Built after the Civil War on the site of a boarding house burned during the Battle of Marianna, the historic MacKinnon House is one of very few homes constructed in Jackson County during the difficult days of the Reconstruction Era. During the Battle of Marianna, Union troops set fire to a two-story boarding house on this site. The home was occupied by the wives and widows of Confederate soldiers at the time and both Northern and Southern accounts indicate that some of the women took part in the battle by firing on the Union troops from the windows of the house. The home is now an attorney’s office.
