Our guide for the main floor started by asking where everyone was from, and when we answered Missouri, he made an overstated "flyover" states joke, and proceeded to "look down his nose" at us. During the tour he made several comments about how Saint John's Episcopal was the richest in the nation, and how very important its members were, and... More

We had two excellent tour guides to show us this beautiful house and tell the related stories. The most amazing thing is that this precious piece of history is owned by a church which uses it for public gatherings all the time. This means you can sit on the furniture and touch anything you want!

If you love history and classic architecture don't miss out in this house. The guides were very friendly and informative. The house is beautiful on the outside and inside it is amazing to walk and stand where major players in American history once stood.

I gave this site one more star than the April 22nd reviewer only because there was no one there to treat us rudely. The home is primarily known from the fact that General Sherman stayed there upon his arrival. He spared the city and wrote a famous letter to Lincoln within the house. Though it is listed as being open... More

Beautiful, probably the grandest and most stunning house tour in savannah. I think being owned by the church does affect its hours of operation so maybe good idea to call or check hours online

This house gets overlooked far too much. If you are seeking a home tour to really kick off your initial trip to Savannah, this is it!

This is the only home tour we have not taken in Savannah. We had planned this trip for 4 months and have visited their website many times. Like other reviews from a couple of years ago, they do not update their web page to indicate they have special activities and the home is unavailable to tour. Also like another reviewer... More

Was closed when I got in the area, but the outside is awesome. Woulda liked to take a look see inside, but couldn't. Very old and well kept property.

This house was a last minute tour before eating at the Pirate's House, then heading home. I was SO incredibly happy we did stop - this house is gorgeous. Quite possibly my favorite so far in Savannah - and I've seen a LOT. The house is part of St John's church, but remains intact, for the most part, as a... More

Would suggest the tour to any history or architecture buff. Sherman had this as his headquarters and through that much of Savannah was saved from the destruction of other places in the south.
