The story of Isaiah Davenport as a builder is good. The story of the 7 women that saved this house from destruction and spurred the historic conservation movement in Historic Savannah is great. Together, they make this a must see spot. $9 is worth it....More

A major stop on almost every tour, it is well deserving of it;s 5-star rating. The tour starts with a short lecture. Large groups are broken down into smaller groups. The furnisnings are outstanding, most original to the house. Includes a re-enactment by an actor...More

Isaiah Davenport House is a requirement; a must visit to get the feeling of the old Federal Style mansions that once dominated Savannah. It was built by cotton on the backs of slaves to satisfy the European textile market for the luxury of the wealthy....More

1820 Federal style house. Furnishings restored to that period. Beautiful ornamental plasterwork. Minimalist style of furnishing. High ticket price. Docent talked way to long. Other Savannah house are much better.

I was on a tour which was supposed to give an architectural view of the house. Some aspects were told, but no more than I would expect from a regular tour. The tour was interesting but very overpriced.
