Davenport House Museum, Savannah

4.2
#6 of 17 in Museums in Savannah
The stately Federal-style home, built by master carpenter Isaiah Davenport for his household, provides a glimpse into 1820s domestic life in the urban port city of Savannah. In 1955 the saving of the Davenport House from demolition was the first effort of Historic Savannah Foundation, which has gone on to national prominence as a preservation leader as well as ushering in the preservation renaissance of the coastal city.

    Great house to take a tour in as the owner of the home was a master builder and so it's impressive to see his meticulous craftsmanship throughout the house. The people that own this museum have worked hard to restore it to look as it did during its hay day. Loved learning about the family and the renovation efforts. Also, finger vases are a very cool thing

    We toured with a large group, almost too large but Lynn our tour guide made sure we all were included, informed and enjoyed ourselves. She was great and the museum is amazing. So happy they are preserving Savannah's heritage. If you're interested in really learning what the heart of history is don't miss the Davenport House.

    Went for the "tea" and it was a very enjoyable history nerd dinner theater. The house itself is very beautiful and the docent was very knowledgeable. More time for questions next time!!

    This was a great tour and well woth the stop. John did an amazing job for the walking historical experience through the house and really gave us all an excellent look inside what life was like in Savannah 200+ years ago. I highly recommend it and we found a Groupon2people for $9 total. Find a meter on the streat to park.
