CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) --  Volunteers are working to restore a historical downtown Corinth home.

The Verandah-Curlee House was built in the 1860's.

Generals from the Confederate and Union sides stayed there during the Civil War.

About 19 volunteers came out to do some yard work at the house Saturday.

They cleared brush, raked leaves and trimmed some trees.

Recently, crews have restored the exterior of the home and are still working on the inside.

It's been about five years since anyone has been in it.

"It really hasn't been cleaned up in a number of years because of the condition of the house," Lead Volunteer Larry Mangus said. "So, now we hope to get the grounds all squared away and the inside refinished and open to the public for tours."

The Verandah-Curlee House will be open April 4-5 so people can see the inside.

There will be three other historical homes open for tours too.
