Best tour we had all week, very inexpensive, and a very different experience. Awesome tour hostess. She gave us an in-depth history lesson about slavery and the role of the church. While small, the museum has an incredible collection of handwritten documents, photos, and items from the 1800s. Check out the handmade quilts and the history behind the designs. Fascinating tour of the original part of the church with handmade pews, and floors with holes in tribal designs that were actually air holes for the underground railroad. Especially great tour for our older Girl Scouts who are studying American history this year, they had a lot of questions. I had goosebumps the whole time. No, we are not African-American, but I wanted the girls to learn about this significant culture in Savannah. We are richer for the experience.
