History of the Isaiah Davenport House 

This home was built by Isaiah Davenport and his crew. He built the home to house his growing family: his wife, ten children, and nine slaves... talk about a full house. The family lived here until Davenport's death in 1827. After that, his wife, Sarah, made the building into a boarding house where she still resided. In 1840, she sold the home to a new couple who kept it in their family for 109 years. Over time, the house began to fall into dismay and was not taken care of. Even so, surveyors recognized the beautiful architecture and its significance to history; so, when it was going to be torn down in 1955, a group of citizens banned together to save it. Thus, starting the Historic Savannah Foundation which has saved many homes since.
