Located in Madison Square, this was the headquarters of General Sherman after he occupied Savannah in 1864.

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...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.

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...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...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...More

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...More

Now this is a house that is worth seeing! So many elements of the age and the hoypoloi of Savannah. And enough of the original family's items that you could understand (almost) what it must have been like to live here.

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
