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

I think Green-Meldrim House is the best home to tour in Savannah. The guides are extremely knowledgable and accommodating. The history of the house is fascinating, too.

We only toured two homes in Savannah, and this was my favorite of the two. Beautiful house, in a beautiful setting. History of the home was interesting, and our tour guide very knowledgeable. If you can only tour a few homes, this one should definitely be on your list, both for its beauty and its interesting history.

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.

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
