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.

I let the waitress know that we had a Birthday at our table and Birthday girl was surprised by Sidra the house singer performing at our table with the voice of Gladys Knight, major Wow factor and a great dining experience that will not be forgotten.

The Green-Meldrim house is a real gem of Savannah. There are many nice places to visit, but this one is the best. It is full of interesting objects inside and one learns a lot on a tour. My both guides Millie and Laura were really nice, very knowledgeable, eager to answer my questions and I had a few. I can... More

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
