It is beautiful but you only see four rooms. Maybe this is typical, I was disappointed. The guide was very good but there just was not enough content to impress me.

I think Green-Meldrim House is the best home to tour in Savannah. The guides are extremely knowledgable and accommodating. The history of the house is fascinating, too.

We only toured two homes in Savannah, and this was my favorite of the two. Beautiful house, in a beautiful setting. History of the home was interesting, and our tour guide very knowledgeable. If you can only tour a few homes, this one should definitely be on your list, both for its beauty and its interesting history.

Where Sherman spent the winter. On Madison Square one of the most beautiful in the city. The house itself is a good representation of what was built in that period.

A great combination of historic house and meeting place for historic figures and a beautifully restored and furnished mansion of great significance in Savannah's history!
