We toured the home on a Friday and the docent was exceptional. The tour narrative was not stiff and scripted like some, but rather told as a good fireside story among friends. The home is beautiful and the tour combines the history of the city...More

If I had to pick one house to live in Savannah, this would definetly be among the top three. It faces the square,made of granite, and is such a Southern Classic!

We toured the House with a small group led by Donna, the Director of the House. She wove together the stories of the house and Aleta Harper-Fowlkes as well as the City of Savannah. Unlike many historic house tours we have been on, this house...More

Always helps to have a guide who is interested and interesting. Lots of Washington connections to the house, and made me want to investigate the Order of Cincinnatus.

Bought tickets to see this house on Groupon and it was worth it. Beautiful historic home with a interesting background story. Our tour guide was very friendly, but long winded. Can’t take pictures inside the house.

Joan was our tour guide and she was fabulous. It was just my husband and I on the tour. She was VERY knowledgeable and had passion for the history of the house and Savannah. A must see if you are coming to Savannah.
