I am a “closet” history buff/nerd, love architecture and old buildings too. The Davenport House Museum was a great find! We were only going to be in Savannah for one afternoon (boo hoo) but, decided to walk a “loop” of the historic district. On our way in to Georgia, we had stopped at a rest stop/visitor center and found a brochure about this site. As it happened, our “loop” put us here just a few minutes before the 3:30 p.m. guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, a passionate historian and coworker in the preservation efforts. My favorite things about the house; one, like Mt Vernon, the Davenport House was saved by a dedicated group of women who believed it was an important, historical property worth fighting for, and two, it is a marvel of one man’s dedication to quality workmanship. Please visit and help support the preservation of this beautiful house.
