The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost...

The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah. Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia. A focus is also maintained on Civil War Savannah, and the role of Brigadier General Moxley Sorrel CSA. Moxley served under General James Longstreet and wrote "Recollections of a Confederate Staff Officer".

  We also operate Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah, as The Sorrel- Weed House was featured on Ghost Hunters with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson in 2005, HGTV "If These Walls Could Talk" in 2006, the Travel Channel in 2010, (the Most Terrifying Places in America) and Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin in 2014.

In January 1940 - The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks opened the Sorrel- Weed House to the public. The name of their exhibit was "The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks Presents a Loan Exhibit of furniture and fine Arts 18th and 19th Centuries at the Sorrel-Weed House on Madison Square. Jan-April 1940" They were founded in 1939 and eventually became the Historic Savannah Foundation. 1954, The Sorrel-Weed House was designated a Georgia State Landmark. It was one of the first houses in Georgia to receive this honor. 2005- The Sorrel Weed House opened to the public for Historic House Tours and Haunted Savannah Ghost Tours. 2010.

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour! We only had 24 hrs in Savannah and I am so glad this is the tour we decided to do. We did the house ghost tour+ walking tour and we learned so much. I'm a real history buff, but I didn't have time to look into the local history before our trip,... More

We just visited Savannah for the first time and decided to take the Sorrel-Weed house tour. Paul was our guide and he was excellent! The history behind the house was interesting and getting to spend time ghost hunting was definitely a pleasure. If we come back to Savannah, we fully intend to sign-up for the late-night paranormal investigation tour. Thank... More

Despite being a Savannah native, I haven't often participated in many of the historic tours downtown. My girlfriend and I decided to see the Sorrel-Weed house while in town for Super Museum Sunday and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This was only the second time I have seen the house, but my appreciation for it grows with each visit. It's... More

Lovely home/museum that is worth your time to see if you want to see how Savannah used to live. Had tour from Don who was knowledgeable, fun and seems to enjoy his work.

This was the best tour I've been on in Savannah. My daughters and I (teens and preteens) were walking by while exploring the squares and inquired about the tour. I am so happy we went in as it was on a was on a whim. The home and furnishings are absoluely majestic and will transport you immediately back in time... More

This is a tour my friends and I have taken before...and thoroughly enjoyed! However, this past time was not so great. The tour seemed very rushed and was not nearly as interesting as it could have been. Our group was WAY too big...there were almost 20 of us. Most of our tour was spent transitioning to different rooms/floors of the... More

We took the full tour which included a tour of the Weed Sorrel House and the walking tour. The house tour was a little boring but we loved the walking portion. Our guide, Gertrude, was an amazing storyteller and kept us all captivated with her stories about Colonial Park and the Hamilton Turner House.

This house was incredible. Our tour focused on architecture and the histories of the families and was the best I've been on in the city! Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

My family and I really liked the combination of touring the most acclaimed haunted house in Savannah plus doing the walking tour at night. The video tapes and paranormal monitors were realistic. I appreciated that it wasn't full of corny stories with fake props. Gertrude was our tour guide and she was an excellent story teller. The walking tour to... More

My girlfriend and I took a ghost tour in January and were lucky to have Paul as our guide. My girlfriend had already done a couple of different ghost tours in Savannah and this one beat them all for her. Paul is an incredible tour guide, with a whole lot of knowledge and passion with what he does. Us and... More
