About the Sorrel-Weed House
Originally built as the home of Francis Sorrel, the building also served as the home of Brigadier General Moxley Sorrel. With such a vast history and role in the Civil War, the home was the first in Savannah to be dedicated as a State Landmark (1954). At 16,000 square feet, it is also one of the largest houses in the city. This home has seen the Civil War, visits by Robert E. Lee, and was used in the opening scene of Forrest Gump! Because of its history, it is also considered to hold residual hauntings, so Discovery Channel's Ghost Hunters have investigated the home.
