Mystery Artifact 2

This artifact comes from a small Mississippi River community that at one time could boast of having half the millionaires in the United States among its population. The huge house pictured here, which was never completed due to the disruption caused by the Civil War, is America's largest octagonal home.

1. Where is this mansion?
2. What is the mansion's name?
