4.1/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • 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.
  • Really enjoyed learning about the history of this house. Great for kids ages 8ish and up as well.
  • Great home for a tour.
  • Beautiful outside. Nothing from the original owners was available (I think sold back in the day or something), so basically everything in the house is what the mgmt "thinks" would have been there based on the Davenport's social status and the time period. Tour guy was bland and uninteresting and overall they were strict and blocked off everything from interaction (like looking at zoo animals from afar) as opposed to Harper Fowlkes who let you interact with things. Would not do this again.
  • I was searching my name in Google Maps and this showed up
