Exceedingly well-informed docents and this remarkable building and its contents make this a must-do feature of the Savannah touring scene. And, at least in our visit, it is a blessedly "ghost free" experience, one that avoids the midnight in the garden of you know what...More

Of all the old homes to see in Savannah, this is one of the historic from a civil war perspective. Where else can you see where General Sherman stayed on his march to the sea? Not lavish in decor, it is historic in viewing.

One of the South's Best Examples of Gothic Revival Architecture!! Yes, this it the nerdiest review title I've ever used but it's 100% true. This is a beautiful nod to the gothic revival period and a stunning example of what old Savannah looked like. It...More

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
