Description
The Historic Homes Walking Tour Photos (7)

Savannah, GA is known for its vast history and Southern charm; from antebellum houses to beautiful mansions, the Historic Homes Tour takes you through a city straight out of an old-time novel. The city is filled with beautiful old homes that dot the streets and stretch above the mossy trees. The architectural feats that were achieved in Savannah were some of the best in the United States, and its heritage is filled with immaculate homes built for Savannah's rich and famous.

On this 90 minute walking tour, you'll cover about a mile of ground and see some of the best homes in the city. Just a few of these homes include the Juliette Gordon Low Home (which you'll be able to tour), the houses of the Historic District, and the Green Meldrim House. Not only are these landmarks culturally significant, but they shaped the way the city was planned out, offering modern visitors a look into its prime.

The Juliette Gordon Low Home
Also known as the Wayne-Gordon House, the home was designated as Savannah's first National Historic Landmark in 1965. Included with it was the First Girl Scout Headquarters, which is located nearby. The home itself features a historic museum and features many of the original Gordon family furniture as well as art from Juliette Gordon Low. This walking tour also includes a tour of this home.

The Green Meldrim House
The Green Meldrim House is a National Historic Landmark that was built in the Gothic Revival style. It is also known as the most expensive 19th-century house in the city. The beautiful home is fully restored and features some of the original woodwork, moldings, chandeliers, and more. It is a fantastic glance into the past. (Tour of home not included).

If you are obsessed with Southern architecture and history, the Historic Home Tour is the best tour to embark upon.
