This property has plenty of parking so you can enjoy this beautiful old house which offers rooms of ship models exclaiming the seaport business of Savannah. Adults and school age children will enjoy seeing these intricate samples and the history of Savannah.

So much to see in a small place. The displays are wonderful as is the art. Even the wood work in the building is fascinating. The garden is lovely too. Take a stroll outside.
