The tour was wonderful and the home was beautiful. I had never seen pocket windows before I came to this house. Also the crown molding is the most intricate design I've ever seen. A definate must!

So far our favorite old Savannah home. The home is amazing and the history just as amazing. Billy Sherman stayed here after taking Savannah during the Civil War.

If you like historic homes, this is a good one to visit. Lots of period piece furnishings and a beautiful home that gives a sense of how the wealthy in Savannah lived during this period of history.
