More rich history i Savannah

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.

There are so many fascinating historical facts behind this house that a single tour will likely only provide some of them. The house has been nicely restored to its era grandeur, and the tour guide did a decent job of providing historical details that helped put the house and its inhabitants into a wider historical context. The place is only... More

A large, beautiful home that played a momentous role in Savannah's history. The volunteer docents are knowledgeable and share their love for this home. As someone else mentioned, this is cash only ($10 per person when we visited).

I had to visit twice as it was closed on Monday when I came. The guides are so friendly and knowledgeable. The interior of this house is very special, quite refined and sophisticated. The tiled floor and furnishings throughout are interesting and decorative.

This is a lovely old home with lots of history. (Sherman stayed there.) It is owned by the church next door, so bring cash to pay. The house is still used by the church, which made it feel more welcoming.

If you only have one hour to spend in Savannah (and that would be a shame) spend that hour visiting the Green-Meldrim House. The story behind the house and the man who built it is fascinating, as is the architecture and furnishings. History buffs will enjoy hearing how/why Mr. Charles Green invited General Sherman to stay at his home while... More

Worth a tour of about an hour. We had two guides. One downstairs and one upstairs. Both are parishioners at the church next door which owns the house and uses it for a coffee hour after church on Sundays.
