Isaiah Davenport House Museum

A favorite tour for anyone who loves Savannah's historic homes as this museum is high on their must see list. Threatened with demolition in the 1950s, this classic Federal-style home became a catalyst for the formation of the Historic Savannah Foundation, a group of seven influential women who were determined to save this historic home. They were able to stop the wrecker's hand less than 24 hours before demolition was to begin. Built in 1820, this fine home features Hepplewhite, Chippendale, and Sheraton furnishings. Open daily 10-4. A small fee is charged.
