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.

We looked at so many different ghost tours while in Savannah, and finally decided on the Sorrel Weed House. Our guides name was Grimm and you could tell he was really passionate about his job, he loves it. He made the tour very entertaining and was super friendly. Highly recommend that you take the tour and try to get him... More

After the home we went on tour to the cemetery and other stories around the town. I would definitely do it again. Thank you , I'm still going through... More

There are so many ghost tours advertised. I am sure they all are worthy, but the Sorrel Weed House is an authentic experience. The story of the home is tragic, but the tour is not diluted with theatrical entertainment. This is the one reason I highly recommend it. It is the only tour that has authentic pictures taken by people... More

Although we are not "ghosties" my husband and I thought it would be a fun way to tour this historic house. The guide was sweet, but the tour consisted of a few undocumented stories of the demise of Matilda and Molly and looking at photos of "sightings" on his cell phone. A total waste of time and money AND we... More

Me and my boyfriend came to Georgia for the history and the haunts. The Sorrel Weed House has both. The staff on both the day (history) tours and the night (paranormal) tours are super friendly and super accommodating. I'd definitely recommend requesting Maury (day) or Nick (night). They were both very informative, personable, knowledgable, and helpful! We will definitely be... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but the house itself isnt all that intriguing. It is going through some construction as it is being restored to its original state but I wasn't blown away. It was storming pretty bad too and we were stuck inside for awhile. This one isnt haunted either. Sort of a dud.

We run a YouTube channel and came to the Sorrel Weed House from Atlanta, GA for a weekend paranormal investigation with Gordon and Nick. Although we were in the house for a short time we did have a few paranormal experiences, we had fun and even made some great friends in the process. 3 weeks later we moved to Savannah... More

Wesley was our tour guide for the 2 hour house and walking tour. He was awesome, he added humor to keep us from running out scared. Our group of 10 Girl Scouts and chaperones had a great time!
