See where General Grant stayed while occupying Savannah and giving it to President Lincoln as a Christmas Gift in 1864. A beautiful home as well to see and enjoy history.

Across Bull Street from Madison Square, this grand house has a long history dating back to the 1850's. The architectural design makes it's appearance standout & the fact that it served as General Sherman's HG while in Savannah adds to it's history.

As an example of John Norris's work this is one of the best. Furnishings are somewhat sparse. And second floor is a bit of a "lumber" room from donated furniture which is not necessarily "period".

A very grand house with the biggest hoot of a docent. She really brought the tour to life. So glad I stopped by!

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

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.
