BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A Confederate flag flies out front at Beauvoir, and Executive Director Greg Stewart said as long as he's there, the flag will be too.

Stewart said the flag attracts visitors from across the county, and when he gets them into the gate, they learn about Jefferson Davis and the history of the flag.

Visitors had mixed feelings on the flag. One thought it should only fly at museums, while others believe it's not offensive and should be allowed wherever because it's part of our history.

Michelle Lady will have the full story on this controversial topic tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
