We were on our way from our home in NYS to Florida. We stopped in the historic district of Savannah, GA with one purpose: To visit the Green=Meldrim House. We checked the opening times before setting out that day, which were 10-1 on Saturdays. We arrived at 9:42 am, along with another family who were in Savannah for the same... More

Was looking forward to going on a tour of the house while in Savannah for a short vacation. Their website and their answering machine said they were open until 1 PM on Saturday's. Arrived at 12 PM, but they were closed. Rang door bell and called them on the phone, but no one answered.

A Magnificent piece of Civil War History. Beautiful House General William Tecumseh Sherman used for his Headquarters when the federal army occupied Savannah during the Civil War, upon the invitation of Mr. Green. It was at this time, December 1864 that General Sherman sent his famous telegram to President Lincoln offering him the City of Savannah as a Christmas Gift.... More

This house was very historic and well preserved since it is now a Parish house for the church next door. The docents are very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting as well.

We enjoyed the personal attention we got on the tour of this house. It was very interesting and I recommend visiting it. The cost was $10 cash per person, and it was well worth it.

Savannah is filled with houses open for tours and it is very hard to choose which one(s) to visit; this is one that should NOT be missed! We passed this house on our walking tour, at which time our guide mentioned that the owner who built it was extremely wealthy and spared no expense in building it. Many European elements... More

Spectacular home built with all the lavishness that represented the weathy of Savannah during this time. Incredible plaster ceiling moldings. Some original furniture and nearly everything was of the period. This home had only two owners in its long history. The guides were gracious and knowledgeable. Well worth the time to visit.

There are many houses to tour in Savannah, and we chose this one because of the great architectural details still in the house as well as its history in the Civil War. General Sherman used this house as his headquarters for the months he was in Savannah; the famous 40 Acres and a Mule decision and Sherman's telegram to Lincoln... More

This historic home is fascinating to visit since it was where Sherman had his headquarters during the civil war. The architecture is stunning! We cannot afford to build these stately old homes like this anymore! I believe we have found the perfect for our dinner. Well worth the visit!
