We were amazed by the home and how accurate it was compaired with the movie. The guide had much information and was so educated about the past and all the antiques and story. Past reviews don't give it much justice. Must see to appriciate it.

Once in Savannah and after reading the book and watching the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" we just had to take the tour of the Mercer - Williams house

What an impressive taste level Mr. Williams had

From the Faux Marble Mantel & Side boards, the Chandeliers, the furnitures, The art
The thoughts behind every item and positioning it

The house is an amazing piece of Current history of Savannah and a Must visit when in town

The most infamous house in Savannah, and irresistible to anyone familiar with “MITGOGAE”. The tour is confined to the first floor and garden, but we left satisfied. The rooms are a bit smaller than we imagined, but are beautifully furnished with a lovely array of fine antiques. Our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable, and although the facts of Mr. William’s death are not brought out, any questions on the subject were answered forthrightly. Most interesting to see a grand historic home furnished and arranged for modern living.

I really wanted to see the Mercer House because when I was in Savannah 20 years ago it wasn't open yet. I read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and saw the movie, so like most others who have I was intrigued about the house. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was nice to see the house in person. There is much controversy about the book, real people, and the legal process for Jim Williams, but I just enjoyed seeing it in person for myself. If you have not read the book or seen the movie you may not enjoy this house as much as I did, but it is a beautifully restored home, but I know there are other house museums in Savannah you may enjoy more. To me it was worth it.
