4.3
#5 of 24 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.

  • My husband and I toured the Davenport House with Olivia as our guide. She made our tour interesting and exciting. Olivia gave us historical facts and fun tidbits about Isaiah Davenport & his family. The garden was peaceful & starting to bloom with lots of birds singing. Our guide made the tour amazing!!
  • The house is lovely. Not as stunning as the Owen Thomas house or Green Meldrim but still fascinating. Our docent was very nice. The gift shop had some very good books and assorted gifts, well displayed.
  • This house is easily one of my favorite to visit in Savannah. The tours are detailed and the staff are extremely knowledgeable!! Come here if you want a real taste of historic Savannah.
  • Wonderful attraction. The historic Kennedy Pharmacy nearby is an excellent venue for small group presentations of fifty persons or less.
  • Historic Savannah, with the charm and grace of docents familiar with life in 1820's. Well worth a return visit. The seasonal tour for New Year was on point. I can't wait to go back for standard tour of house.
