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. The Sorrel Weed House was designated a Museum in the State of Georgia.

Toured this house during the day. Considered most haunted house so most folks tour at night. We had a private tour by the gentleman involved in the current restoration. Loved seeing these rooms pre restoration and hearing his plans for the future. Hope to return to Savannah to see the changes.

This was the most awesome thing I've ever done!! The guides were so informative and helpful. My daughter caught an EVP and I was tapped on the shoulder in the surgery room. Goosebumps in the basement several times. My daughter and the other woman we were with heard a voice in Molly's room. I will definitely do this again and... More

My grown son and I had visited this beautiful home before and found it very interesting with an excellent creep factor. We decided to return again with his girlfriend this visit. This visit did not go as planned. He is a Sensitive and this time whatever was in that house did not want him there. 20 minutes into the tour... More

Grimm was fun and factual. Great historical home to visit. I wish we could have seen more of the house. It's nice to see a place that encourages you to take photos and use your flashlights in dark areas. It doesn't have to be dark. . . That may be the scariest thing ;)

We had a great experience with the Sorrel Weed House Ghost Tour during our stay in Savannah. Our guide, Grimm, was absolutely phenomenal! He is by far one of the best story tellers/public speakers my wife and I have ever heard. Grimm was very upfront from the very beginning and you could tell that he was very genuine and not... More

If you are totally down with seeing ghosts and walking the halls and getting the chills of your life time this is the place! I defiantly recommend doing the "late night tour" it is a little more expensive but DEFINTTLY worth every penny!

We took the haunted tour at the Sorrel Weed House, and had a wonderful time. With most sites in Savannah, there is a lot of history with this home. Some of that history is rather sad. Although we didn't have any ghostly encounters, the history itself and the stories about the home are haunting enough. This was a great tour!

My mom and i visited Savannah for the weekend and decided to do a tour of the most haunted house in Savannah. We did the day tour, but there is a nightly ghost tour also. Great history telling of the home by our guide. There is documented sightings and audio capture of ghosts in this house which can be found... More

I had been on the tour of this house before about 3 years ago and while is was great before, Nick, I suppose the manager who did the 10:00 PM tour on 09/17/2016, just made it better when you would think that it really couldn't get much better. The house is lovely but it does without a doubt have a... More
