This 1842 Greek Revival mansion has been beautifully restored on the first and second floors. It has an interesting history and I loved how the docent tied in different parts of Savannah in her stories about the house. The grounds in back are very pretty...More

My son and daughter in law were married in the square across the street and had their reception here! It was perfect! The vintage home and outside area is beautiful! The staff can't be beat! There are tours during the day.

I enjoyed this tour. Why there were extra doors put in a room. The uniqued air venting system and how the owner had the backyard created to look like the rest of the house AFTER she passed.

Visited Harper Fowlkes House as a part of Architectural course taken at Learning Center. The house is impressive and offers evidence of various architectural designs. The garden in the rear of the house and porch are lovely.

While on our Segway ride, our guide pointed out this beautiful home. It is only a couple of minutes walk to Chippewa Square, well known for the the bench that Tom Hank's character sat on in the movie, Forest Gump. It's also just about a...More

The home's architecture and furnishings were stunning, but the story of the owner - a woman definitely ahead of her time - was worth the price of admission. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told her story beautifully.
