  • Very interesting tour. Captured two orbs on the camera while in the basement. Good to know the story of the people who occupied the house early on.  more »
  • Mari was our tour guide today and showed us the true history of the house. She went into detail of the intricacy of the original house, the department store and how the house has now been restored...  more »

  • We took our Girl Scout troop here in June '19. This was a major highlight of our trip to Savannah. Anna (I don't know if that's how she spells her name) was amazing. The best guide we had while in the city. The house is gorgeous and creepy and it did not disappoint. The best part was when Anna took us on the walking ghost tour to the cemetery and other presumably haunted landmarks, and a huge thunderstorm broke out right over us. Talk about ambience!
  • Interesting tour given by one of the family members. You can see where this place was once a palace. The family has been working to bring it back to its glory. They say it's haunted but I never felt ghosts. Probably because it was too hot for the ghosts!
