Description:

The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost...

The Sorrel- Weed House operates Historic Savannah Tours and Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah. Our purpose is to educate the public on the rich neoclassical Greek Revival architecture of the Sorrel- Weed House and the the famous architect Charles Cluskey who designed it, along with and the cultural history of antebellum Savannah Georgia. A focus is also maintained on Civil War Savannah, and the role of Brigadier General Moxley Sorrel CSA. Moxley served under General James Longstreet and wrote "Recollections of a Confederate Staff Officer".

  We also operate Haunted Ghost Tours in Savannah, as The Sorrel- Weed House was featured on Ghost Hunters with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson in 2005, HGTV "If These Walls Could Talk" in 2006, the Travel Channel in 2010, (the Most Terrifying Places in America) and Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin in 2014.

In January 1940 - The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks opened the Sorrel- Weed House to the public. The name of their exhibit was "The Society for the Preservation of Savannah Landmarks Presents a Loan Exhibit of furniture and fine Arts 18th and 19th Centuries at the Sorrel-Weed House on Madison Square. Jan-April 1940" They were founded in 1939 and eventually became the Historic Savannah Foundation. 1954, The Sorrel-Weed House was designated a Georgia State Landmark. It was one of the first houses in Georgia to receive this honor. 2005- The Sorrel Weed House opened to the public for Historic House Tours and Haunted Savannah Ghost Tours. 2010.

Had a great time. The guide I think will make the tour. They spend time on the backstory and it helps to set you in the right frame of mind. Once in the house, it was fun to walk around and let your imagination play tricks on you. I do not personally believe in ghost but went in with an... More

We paid our $10 each for a tour of the property. The guide was somewhat knowledgeable of the homes history, and the property is quite empty. They call it a baby museum. True. I would have been willing to pay more for a better education on the place. All in all an hour and a half of my life I... More

Paul our tour guide was very enthusiastic. He didn't care about the clock. His presentation was his own and not spewed from a preplanned speech. He mixed his experience plus photos and videos from guests. Great!

We went at a busy time, but they went out of their way to make it the best possible tour. The guide was knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic. All of the staff were really accommodating and friendly. We liked that it was more than a walking tour, like most are, but that we were able to spend time inside the historic... More

We signed up for the extended home tour & ghost walk. The home is not at all historically decorated or furnished as other homes in the area so if you are hoping to see great history or architecture you will be wildly disappointed. Savannah is famous for its' haunted past and this home is supposed to be one of the... More

My fiancé and I participated in the paranormal investigation tour on New Year's Day (1130 to 2 AM). It was sooooo much fun. Grim, the lead investigator, is both knowledgeable and passionate about ghost hunting. I highly recommend this tour! Be prepared for ghost action.

We had Paul as our tour guide and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable and a great story teller. He made it a lot of fun, explaining all the history but telling all the interesting stories that go with it. He showed us pictures of things previous patrons had caught on their cameras. He answered all our questions and gave us... More

Our guide, Paul, was great and very fun! The tour was informative. The guide does not plant false ideas or feelings about spirits in your head so we really enjoyed that. If you experience anything in the house, like we did, it's real. No placebo here! The tour absolutely exceeded our expectations! Very thrilling experience! We'll be back soon!!

Paul was great! We went in January 3 to the 9:30 tour. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of the groups' questions. He is a fabulous storyteller and has the perfect voice to make the experience memorable. Listen for Molly....... Molly?
