The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah. Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia. A focus is also maintained on Civil War Savannah, and the role of Brigadier General Moxley Sorrel CSA. Moxley served under General James Longstreet and wrote "Recollections of a Confederate Staff Officer".

  We also operate Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah, as The Sorrel- Weed House was featured on Ghost Hunters with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson in 2005, HGTV "If These Walls Could Talk" in 2006, the Travel Channel in 2010, (the Most Terrifying Places in America) and Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin in 2014.

In January 1940 - The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks opened the Sorrel- Weed House to the public. The name of their exhibit was "The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks Presents a Loan Exhibit of furniture and fine Arts 18th and 19th Centuries at the Sorrel-Weed House on Madison Square. Jan-April 1940" They were founded in 1939 and eventually became the Historic Savannah Foundation. 1954, The Sorrel-Weed House was designated a Georgia State Landmark. It was one of the first houses in Georgia to receive this honor. 2005- The Sorrel Weed House opened to the public for Historic House Tours and Haunted Savannah Ghost Tours. 2010.

We were super nervous/excited for our paranormal investigation tour and we left feeling bored and let down. With Paul as our guide, we didn't feel engaged. At one point it just felt like we were all standing in a dark room. The end. His wording was bland, lacked the "storyteller factor," and just matter of fact. We were disappointed to... More

This house has not been restored and of all the houses to see, save some time and miss this one. Someday it will be worth the visit.

I can't recommend this place enough. Gordon and his team were super friendly and cool, and knew everything about the property's history and 'inhabitants'. My group and I had many creepy experiences in the house, including hearing a female scream, and a woman's sobbing in the carriage house. A member in my group saw a ghostly figure walk up the...

There are lots of ghost tours in Savannah, but if you actually want to experience something paranormal, I think your odds are better with the Sorrel Weed house tour. I actually had an experience on this one. Our tour guide was great (I think her name was Madelyn??? - she had been an historian at the house for several years... More

I walked in to the Sorrel-Weed House a skeptic of the paranormal. But I can honestly say, beyond a doubt, that I had an experience there. This place is undoubtedly haunted. A must do for anyone into this kind of thing. An extremely unique experience, we were left in rooms of this dark, VERY HAUNTED mansion with equipment to help... More

My husband and I booked the ghost tour that offers a chance to use ghost hunting equipment and states that you get to tour the house freely. Mmmmm...not exactly. This event costs $75.00 per person. We thought it would be fun to tour "the most haunted house in savannah", so we purchased our tickets early. The tour is roughly 4-5... More

My fiancé, a few coworkers and I went to the Sorrel Weed House for the paranormal investigation tour. We had an amazing time and experienced tons of paranormal activity. My coworkers saw apparitions, my fiancé was touched, and I heard a breath next to me followed by cigarette smoke. These were only a few of the many crazy things that... More

We had a great time at the Sorrel Weed House. Our guide was the Savannah Story Teller and he was awesome. The price to get in was really more than we wanted to spend $30pp :-/ Very steep, but in the end we are glad we went and learned the history of the home. It is a beautiful mansion and... More

Great old house being restored to former glory. Boyhood home of CSA General Moxley Sorrel. Ghosts are said to roam but not when we were there.
