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!

The house is interesting, but I found the tour guides to be lacking in real knowledge. I asked a question and was told that she only knew what was in the script she was provided. There was no effort made to ask one of the other staff members if they knew. The 45-minute tour seemed rush, especially the guide showing... More

We were advised to go here by a tour guide, and it was a great experience. The ladies that showed us around gave some great information and insights into the history of the house. Best $10

Would have loved to spend more time admiring the beautiful architecture, but we were rushed from room to room and not given too many details on the different artifacts in each room. I still would strongly recommend visiting that house though; you might end up with a better tour guide.

We took this tour mainly because this place was the headquarters of General Sherman after he burned Atlanta and marched his army to Savannah devastating the countryside along the way. The tour took less than an hour and was somewhat rushed. I hesitated to ask any information from the elderly lady who took us on the tour of the downstairs... More

We had the great fortune of taking this tour with a direct descendant of the Meldrim family. The tour guide had been best friends with his aunt so we had an inside scoop on many of the objects in the home and more detailed history. It is a great tour anyway, we just got the enhanced version

From the original owners of this house to the present day, this beautiful home has been loved and cared for. Although all of the furnishings are not original to the house, they are period pieces. We enjoyed the photographs and paintings that added to the appreciation of the home's past. Especially loved the architectural features! Would like to have had... More
