What makes this delightful mansion, with its large and ornate rooms, so worth visiting is the charm and expertise of the 'docents' - the guides whose knowledge is encyclopaedic.

Although this home is now owned by the St. John's Episcopal Church, it is quite interesting and worth a visit. Still in use, tours are available and the docents are quite knowledgeable. Mr. Green invited General Sherman to stay in his home while in Savannah...More
