We visited the House as part of a tour. The house is incredible and the architectural design is breath taking. It’s heart warming that they are taking the time to finish bringing the house back to its original splendor.

The docents at the Davenport House give the most informative tour of a historically preserved home in Savannah. I've brought guests many times and each time I have been impressed. Cute gift shop.
