In addition to private residences, the tour will include three of Savannah’s most beautiful and interesting Museum homes: the Andrew Low House, an Italianate mansion where Juliette Low founded the Girl Scouts of America. 

     Enjoy the Green Meldrim House, one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the South. General William Tecumseh Sherman used this house as his headquarters when the Union Army occupied Savannah during the Civil War.

 

     The Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home has been added to the tour this year. Mary Flannery O'Connor was an American novelist, short story writer and essayist. The home is one of the few museum houses in the country that is restored to the Depression-era, and it features rare books and collectibles.


     In addition, participants will be able to visit the Massie Heritage Center, the oldest school in
continuous operation in Georgia. It houses exhibits on Savannah architecture, culture and
education.
