House is very interesting to walk thru. Certainly a varied history. You can tell the house is owned by a church, used and the preservation / tours are secondary. The tour guides didn't seem to "love" the house as much as it a dutiful volunteer time spot. The mixed use does give this house a different feel from other true... More

This was a great House and a great tour. The docents were very knowledgeable and passionate about the house. The history and architecture was very interesting. Truly a beautiful home. It was historic while comfortable and lived since it is still used weekly. This was my favorite stop in Savannah.

On my tour we saw several rooms- four on the ground floor and five or six upstairs. The tour guides were very informative not just about the history of the house but also the history of Savannah. This house closes early on Saturdays, so take that into account if you're in Savannah for a weekend. This paired well with a... More

Now this is a house that is worth seeing! So many elements of the age and the hoypoloi of Savannah. And enough of the original family's items that you could understand (almost) what it must have been like to live here.

Unlike most of the historic house tours in Savannah, which consist of little more than a "look at our lovely collection of period appropriate items," this house tour actually tells you the story of the occupants. The guides are very wonderful, and they are very knowledgeable.

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.

Had the opportunity to visit the Green-Meldrim House included in the Christmas Tour of Homes just a few days before the 150 year anniversary of the infamous penning of the telegram by Sherman presenting Savannah to President Lincoln. Incredible tour! Dottie was our guide for the first floor of the home and she mentioned it was her 15th year as... More
