The thing that made this house unique compared to the other two homes I visited is that this home was built by the owner. The others were built for wealthy individuals with no expense spared. It provided an interesting contrast to the other homes.
This home also has a sad, but interesting history. Most of it's useful life it served as a boarding or tenament house

With so many historic houses to see in Savannah it would be easy to overdo it and get bored. We chose the Davenport House based on the AAA/CAA guide and were very happy with the interesting and informative tour. Having said that one tour was enough and I think we'd have spoiled it if we'd tried to cram more in.

I suggest you buy a ticket that covers this house, the Andrew Low House and Juliette Gordon's Birthplace as they are all different and equally interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and the house gave you a very good idea of life in the 1800's. The gift shop is excellent and I picked up quite a few bits and pieces to take home for gifts. Take time to enjoy the garden as well as the house.

The story of this house, and how it was saved and restored, is very motivating. We purchased the Pioneers in Preservation multi-site pass for $18 which includes admission to Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Andrew Low House, and Davenport House Museum. This house was my third favorite. The other people on the tour were kind of fun to hang with. Glad that our admission will support more work and glad we went.

I am so thankful to the ladies of Savannah who worked to preserve this home. It would have been a shame to lose it to a wrecking ball. Though the furnishings are not orginal to the house, they have been carefully selected to match the era. This was the last home we toured while in Savannah and it was interesting to compare it to the homes once owned by the more affluent members of the community. It was fun to imagine living there in the 1820's.
