Mr. Davenport was a builder who wanted to showcase his craft. The house is beautiful with furnishings from the period, some of them from the family itself. Docents are very knowledgeable. Has a nice gift shop in the basement.

The tour is a perfect introduction to the history of Savannah. The house was beautifully restored and is furnished with period articles. It is definitely worth a visit and helps a foundation preserve additional houses with your admission.

I am not a big fan of museums, but the Davenport House was a real treat. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made us feel as if we knew the Davenports.

This was a good take back to the 19th century and how things were. The architecture inside the house is beyond its time. It is amazing how the staircase winds in the center of the house.

This is not as opulent as some other houses one can visit in Savannah but we found the tour quite appealing. The restoration is wonderful and it will be better next year when they complete the next phase. The condition of the house is fabulous....More

The Davenport House tour gave me the greatest appreciation of what the Historic Savannah Doundation has really accomplished. The tour starts with a brief video that is very well done and worthwhile. Beautiful home to tour, quaint gift shop as well.
