I went there as a part of a ghost tour at night. The house is in a great shape, so many lovely timepieces - a great collection! It was a nice visit and the history behind it.

Interesting story of on how a New Englander came to Savannah and grew a craftsman's business. The tour shares how and why design elements were important. Great presenters Also valued the story and action of strong women on historical preservation making a difference.

The story of Isiah Davenport was quite interesting and certainly the craftsmanship in the building of the house is beautiful.

I did not like the feeling in this museum. I do not enjoy the tour guide and just felt an undercurrent that I didn't like. Can't put my finger on it.

Very interesting tour. Our tour guide did a very good job and was very knowledgeable of the house and it's history. A lot of bad luck for the Davenport family all brought to life by the guide who was a former teacher from Maine.

We visited the House as part of a tour. The house is incredible and the architectural design is breath taking. It’s heart warming that they are taking the time to finish bringing the house back to its original splendor.
