The tour was wonderful and the home was beautiful. I had never seen pocket windows before I came to this house. Also the crown molding is the most intricate design I've ever seen. A definate must!

So far our favorite old Savannah home. The home is amazing and the history just as amazing. Billy Sherman stayed here after taking Savannah during the Civil War.

This historic home is toured with different docents upstairs and downstairs, which results in a longer tour and provides lots of interesting information. This was one of my favorite of the homes, partly because I was able to spend more time looking around. They are...More

If you like historic homes, this is a good one to visit. Lots of period piece furnishings and a beautiful home that gives a sense of how the wealthy in Savannah lived during this period of history.

I loved this house! It is gorgeous and unusual (Gothic revival!). The tour explains with just enough detail the history and the architecture. It was interesting to see the details that made the house more livable in the summer. This included a dome at the...More

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
