Davenport House Museum
Completed in 1820, this handsome building on Columbia Square is one of the city's finest examples of Federal architecture. Its proposed destruction in 1953 caused such a public outcry that seven local women raised over $20,000 to prevent it. From this impetus was born the Historic Savannah Foundation, which through the years has been responsible for restoring over 1000 historically and architecturally significant city structures. Admission: $6 Adults; $3 Children 6-18
The house feels "real". It was an upper middle class family's home. The furniture and artifacts are period. I felt as if someone really lived there, not that it was a museum. Beth W. was our tour guide. She was great and told us a lot about the house, the family's way of life and information about the surrounding area. We thouroughly enjoyed it and recommend it.
