The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah. Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia. A focus is also maintained on Civil War Savannah, and the role of Brigadier General Moxley Sorrel CSA. Moxley served under General James Longstreet and wrote "Recollections of a Confederate Staff Officer".

  We also operate Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah, as The Sorrel- Weed House was featured on Ghost Hunters with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson in 2005, HGTV "If These Walls Could Talk" in 2006, the Travel Channel in 2010, (the Most Terrifying Places in America) and Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin in 2014.

In January 1940 - The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks opened the Sorrel- Weed House to the public. The name of their exhibit was "The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks Presents a Loan Exhibit of furniture and fine Arts 18th and 19th Centuries at the Sorrel-Weed House on Madison Square. Jan-April 1940" They were founded in 1939 and eventually became the Historic Savannah Foundation. 1954, The Sorrel-Weed House was designated a Georgia State Landmark. It was one of the first houses in Georgia to receive this honor. 2005- The Sorrel Weed House opened to the public for Historic House Tours and Haunted Savannah Ghost Tours. 2010.

This house is so attractive from the street, that I felt I must go on the tour - but what a disappointment. The gentleman who tried to restore it from it's days as a shopping mall obviously ran out of cash and sold it. Most of the tour is of the basement (picture bare brick walls and a brick and... More

Interesting to see the inside of the old house. We only went in the basement and main floor. Would like to have toured upstairs. Was like being at camp and telling ghost stories after lights out! We were a small enough group so we all got ghost detectors. Funny they only went off once when we were in a "special"... More

Our guide Diane was very informative about the history of the house and added to the haunting feeling by sharing her ghostly experiences at her own home at the end of our tour. She also took the time to answer all of my son's questions about the house and other haunted sites in Savannah when the tour was over. She... More

Must see! We did not do a ghost tour. We just happened to walk by and stopped in for a tour. It was neat to be able to see the house before the remodel is complete. Has lots of neat history.

Historic old House with a very creepy past! The story of the house was very interesting , with many deaths and reports of ghost activity. We did a 1 hour house tour, 9-10. Guide was a great story teller on the house history along with her own personal experiences. Definitely got a creepy feeling in the house like other people... More

Really, felt strange while there. It is in the process of being reno'd you can still see the grandeur. The history is amazing and not all of it is great - this was the old South after all. Still makes for a great to do,

This was a great tour. We all know how haunted Savannah is but it was great to hear why. Our tour guide was great and knowledgeable. The tour was terrific. I highly recommend it. The teens loved it.

My husband and I spent our 10th anniversary in Savannah. We love ghost tours and this was definitely one of the best. Very interesting and fun. I caught some videos of paranormal activity. Our guide Paul was great and very knowledgeable. Can't wait to come back to do the other investigation at night with more equipment! Thanks again for a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour! We only had 24 hrs in Savannah and I am so glad this is the tour we decided to do. We did the house ghost tour+ walking tour and we learned so much. I'm a real history buff, but I didn't have time to look into the local history before our trip,... More

We just visited Savannah for the first time and decided to take the Sorrel-Weed house tour. Paul was our guide and he was excellent! The history behind the house was interesting and getting to spend time ghost hunting was definitely a pleasure. If we come back to Savannah, we fully intend to sign-up for the late-night paranormal investigation tour. Thank... More
