Savannah Historic Homes
and House Museums

Savannah historic homes are the City's crown jewels.

Savannah takes great pride in her historic homes and house museums, but that was not always the case. Tragically, in the 1950s, many of Savannah’s historically and architecturally significant buildings were demolished. But when the Davenport House was threatened, seven local women stepped up and formed the Historic Savannah Foundation to purchase and preserve this historic treasure, saving it just 24 hours before the scheduled demolition. The Historic Savannah Foundation continues to be a major force in Savannah’s redevelopment and revitalization.

Renovation and restoration continues. Over the centuries, Savannah has survived war, fires, and demolition, but the Hostess City of the South has never been more beautiful.

Many of the Savannah historic homes have been converted into museums, restaurants or inns and are open to the public.
