    If this house tour was only one of several on a 'tour of homes' program, it would (at best) be okay; given its current state. But, quite simply it isn't worth the $12 'tour' fee, and even if money was no object I'd keep this house at the bottom of my tour list. Indeed, its exterior provides more interest than its interior. As a stand alone (on going) house tour, it takes advantage of tourists who presume a certain amount of historic significance or intrigue, whether building or people related.

    We are into visiting mansions and the ones in Savannah are special because of the people who owned them and the civil war. Good guides to tell you the story.

    Beautiful european style wedding venue, perfect for intimate weddings in the courtyard.

    As opposed to the Davenport House Museum, HF was a much nicer experience and we were allowed to interact with the authentic, original pieces in the house. Tour lady was sweet and the house was beautiful. 4 stars because the don't tour the basement or top-most floor. Would do this again.
