Davenport House Museum, Savannah
(4.1/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Excellent guided tour and a fabulous restoration. Highly recommend if you are in Savannah and like historical homes.
  • Really enjoyed learning about the history of this house. Great for kids ages 8ish and up as well.
  • Admission gets you a close-up guided tour of a well preserved and restored 19th century upper-middle class home. The tour was informative and gives you a sense of daily home life from that period.
  • This is an old historic house and the guided tour was pretty good.
  • Great home for a tour.
