Whether you're a Yankee or a Southerner (or are confused because you thought the War ended about 150 years ago), it's interesting to imaging Sherman and his officers and horses making use of this house after his "March to the Sea." Take a tour and find out how it was that Sherman ended up in THIS house, and why Savannah... More

I am always amazed at the craftsmanship of these homes. Very unique pocket doors and a bridge upstairs that was really interesting.

This house a real highlight of our day in Savannah. It is completely authentic and virtually untouched since it was built! The church that owns it still uses it for Sunday tea, so when most houses ask you to "keep your distance," this house is still in use! The guides who led us through the house were also very informative... More

I had been to Savannah before and missed seeing this treasure. Loved every aspect of this fantastically preserved home which, when it was built at a cost of $94,000 was the most expensive home in Savannah. Everything about the house is fabulous but the most impressive thing is all of the original moldings, woodwork, and chandeliers. You'll not see anything... More

This is a beautifully preserved PreCivil war home. The home has only had 2 owners prior to the Church that now owns it. The know so much about the family and the home's history! Please dont miss this beautiful and historical home. I would allow 30-45 minutes. You will not be sorry you saw this one! It was General Sherman's... More

The tour was very fascinating and the guides were a real delight. Also you were encouraged to touch and feel the furniture, moldings, silver, etc. - which is unusual on a historic home tour. We were also going to tour the Owens-Thomas House but the staff in the gift/ticket shop was so rude we decided not to - not all... More

The Green-Meldrim House was one of the highlights of our Savannah trip! Much better than anticipated! The architecture and furnishings were beautiful, the guides knowledgeable. The antiques, the history, and the stories were just wonderful. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I plus another couple toured the Green-Meldrim House in early March 2014, A beautiful, historic house in Savannah. Unfortunately, the quality of dur tour varied from good to less than good as the docent - or tour guide - changed as our group moved from one floor to the next. As a student of the Civil War... More

This is worth doing. The house has been in continuous use since it was built; the church next door now owns it and hosts events in it. I had two guides/docents, and both were very knowledgeable. The rooms and furnishings are impressive. After a miserable experience at the Sorrel-Weed house nearby, it was nice to warm up and hear about... More

A wonderful house and tour; the inside is absolutely gorgeous. Of course, to us Southerners, we do have to get past that this is where Sherman set up his headquarters in Savannah, but the house is great inside and worth the time. The hours are erratic, but take the time to see this true jewel of architecture and design, it... More
