We enjoyed our tour through the house and everyone was very friendly. The only thing I wasn't to keen about was that there were no photos allowed. I wish I could have taken a few pictures. In the room where General Sherman signed papers and had his office (which was upstairs), I felt there were people in there. Very beautiful house.

The historical value alone would make this house a must see, but that's only a portion of the reason to tour this splendid home. The ornate ironwork on the home's exterior may remind you of New Orleans. We arrived late in the day, and thought it would be too late to tour the home. Instead, a friendly host greeted us at the door, and told us we could join the last tour of the day. We were not disappointed- this is truly a must see when visiting Savannah. The silver plated door hardware is all original.
Even most of the window glass is original. It was interesting to learn of the cross ventilation design of the home, using its doors and windows on all 4 sides. The features of the main entrance doors are also very interesting! And, of course, the home is best known as Sherman's headquarters during his occupation of Savannah during the Civil War. One of the best attractions in the city!

A must see for anyone interested in historical building and design. This gothic revival is full of the original furnishings and has been maintained well.

I think that is it is a mandatory tour for anyone truly interested in Savannah history and culture. Our guides were outstanding in their presentation. Very interesting, and thought-provoking stories.
The house is truly an outstanding example of an enlightened approach to home architecture and engineering for its day. Beautifully rejuvenated.

This house was absolutely beautiful. It is now owned by the Episcopal church located next door. The guides for this house were very informative and really nice. This was my favorite house we toured.
