We loved the house, and the docent was well informed. We'd recommend this house to anyone. Good investment of time and money.

Plan to be there on the hour or half-hour. Because that's when they run their tours. We waited 25 minutes for the next tour.

We arrived at 12:50 on Sunday when the first tour is at 1pm. The doors were already open and we were able to get in before the tour and see the video, too. The house visit was a great value!

Sue was our tour guide and did a wonderful job. My two granddaughters, my mother, and myself enjoyed the very educational tour. Beautiful house.

From Our Editors

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.
