In 1820, an upwardly mobile carpenter named Isaiah Davenport designed a 6,800-square-foot Federal-style home to live in with his wife, children, and slaves. After his death, Davenport’s wife turned the stately brick house into a boarding house, though it later devolved into a run-down tenement—until the Historic Savannah Foundation saved the landmark when it was threatened with demolition in 1955. The organization’s award-winning preservation, their very first effort, jumpstarted an organized preservation movement that spread across the entire port city.

Today, the Davenport House Museum’s rooms are filled with antique furniture from the 1820s, acquired after careful research relying on estate inventories and detailed artist renderings of long-ago games of musical chairs. These period-accurate tables and chairs join ceramics, textiles, and books to form the museum’s collection of about 500 historical items. Behind the home, where a carriage house, garden, and privy once stood, a garden designed by renowned landscape artist Penelope Hobhouse flourishes. After walking among its flowers, visitors can drop by the museum shop to pick up jams and jellies, books about Savannah, and reproductions of early 19th-century items.

Daufuskie Discoveries creates opportunities to explore Daufuskie Island's lush, historic habitat with customized guided or private outings. An enclosed or open-air water taxi quickly shuttles small groups from Hilton Head or Savannah to the island's three-mile stretch of sandy beach in 30 minutes, with captains tossing out facts about Calibogue Sound and Cooper River. Customers disembark and board their conveyance of choice—golf cart, boat, or shoes—before bursting through the tree line into specific isle regions, such as Bloody Point, which houses the Bloody Point Cemetery and Bloody Point Lighthouse & Silver Dew Winery. Three-hour private cruises skirt the coastline as a guide artfully describes the sun dipping beneath marshes as a hot air balloon deflated by a stampeding herd of storks.

Dirk Hardison finds the beauty of Savannah to be in its details—the cherry trees that line Huntingdon Street and the antebellum Victorian architecture of the Mercer House. These are elements he knows inside and out—in his two decades as a Savannah resident, he has worked on preservation projects of the First Bryan Baptist Church and the 1921 Lucas Theatre. He also served as the architectural design consultant for the Historic Savannah Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes the maintenance and restoration of buildings in all nine historic districts.

Dirk knows that Savannah’s details are easily blurred from onboard a moving vehicle or traffic-dodging police horse, so he founded Savannah Rambles, where he orchestrates walking tours of his beloved city. Though the rambles are built around architecture, the city’s structural elements also serve as stepping-stones into explorations of Savannah’s history and culture. Aside from the signature Savannah Architectural Ramble—a two-hour tour that can be open, private, or extended to the five-hour grand version—the nighttime Dark Ramble meets at Tomochichi’s gravesite and slinks through the oldest streets and burial sites as Dirk recounts eerie Savannah lore.

Local author Robert Edgerly is a virtual storybook as he spins old tales of Savannah on his walking tours. He waxes both historical and folklorical on subjects from the evolution of the city's 19th-century ironwork and architecture to the verifiable histories of its many ghosts. He carefully constructs his stories without non-historical padding. Each tale is the product of his extensive research, even tracking down eyewitnesses to local supernatural happenings to lend credence and color to his stories.
