The house was well maintained with all the original woodwork, moldings, etc. the guides were informative. We thought it was neat that the church that owns the house uses it for functions.

We were told by our walking guide that this is the house to see if you are only stopping at one for a visit. General Sherman stayed there during his occupation of Savannah. Amazing details in the doors and windows.

We were lucky enough to go on this tour with a member of the Meldrim family. Many of the artifacts and artwork were in his families home when he was a child and he could give us a bit more background on certain items. The tour is broken down by each floor and the upstairs guide had been friends with... More

This is probably the best house tour I've been on in Savannah. The house is fully open to be seen and is still used by the church. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the house. During our tour, we had one guide for downstairs and another guide for upstairs. Towards the end of the tour the lady showing us... More

History wise this beautiful home is the most interesting as it is where Sherman gave Savannah to Lincoln as a Christmas present and offered 40 acres and a mule to the freed slaves.
