Check closely to see if you can get in. We were not lucky. According to people at the Sorrell house--which was wonderful BTW--nearly any private event--frequent--will close this house to tours.

The Green-Meldrim House is unlike any other house you'll see in Savannah and, oh, what a history! This is an interesting way to while away some time while wandering around the wonderful Madison Square.

The guides spent as much time talking about the church that owns the house as the house, but they were pretty knowledgeable about the house; although some of the stories have changed from my visit 15 years ago. It's surprising how much the guides don't...More

One of the most historical events of the civil war happened at this house. This is where Sherman met with the 20 black ministers which led to the creation of “40 acres and a mule”. This was the main reason I paid for the tour....More

Exceedingly well-informed docents and this remarkable building and its contents make this a must-do feature of the Savannah touring scene. And, at least in our visit, it is a blessedly "ghost free" experience, one that avoids the midnight in the garden of you know what...More

Of all the old homes to see in Savannah, this is one of the historic from a civil war perspective. Where else can you see where General Sherman stayed on his march to the sea? Not lavish in decor, it is historic in viewing.

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
