If you've read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" (and if you're going to Savannah, you SHOULD read it), this is a must! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and we loved all the backstories about the characters from the book!

We stopped by to tour the Mercer Williams House on one of the stopped on the Trolley Tour. Make sure you tour this house while in Savannah. The history and stories that are part of this house are entertaining and informative.

Didn't think it was worth the price but if you are a fan of the movie/book, In the Garden of Good and Evil, as my wife is, then I guess you gotta go.

Ever since I saw the movie "Garden of Good/Evil" I've wanted to visit this home. It was absolutely awesome and while we were there we caught a glimpse of the current owner. Doesn't get any better than that! Went back to the hotel and watched the movie again!

Went several years ago....Had read the book about what happened in this house and just had to see for myself....Beautiful home...After reading the book and seeing the movie, I thought this house would have been much bigger....So many people went to the parties here but in reality the rooms are not that big....and while the backyard is nice, it's very...

I had read reviews where people were not happy that you can only tour the first floor. I had no complaints! It is a private home and they have the right to decide what people can view. Our guide also told us that they were limited to show only the ground floor because of fire codes. Jim Williams had a... More
