This landmark is an absolutely wonderful stop! The staff (McDonough really stood out!) are all trained historians and know the history of the landmark (by-war) like the back of their hands. During our time (3 hours at the park!) we were educated on the Fort's involvement in each war, and we were able to see them fire each individual cannon as well as War of 1812-era rifles. The scenery here is beautiful, it's worth it to bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds.

This is a very popular house tour in Savannah so I recommended getting there early. We only had to wait 20 minutes and they operate very efficiently. The outdoor waiting area has benches and rest rooms. There is also a gift shop where you can pass some time if you have to wait. All I can say is that this house is worth the wait! It has been beautifully restored and you get to see all of it from the slave quarters in the basement to the posh upper floors decorated to the hilt as a wealthy family.

This house is amazing. It has three floors but you only tour two of them. If you can't take walking up the steps the tour guide will let you get on the elevator. I was especially impressed with the North and South Parlor. The modeling around the doors I believe the Guide said it came from Egypt; beautiful. The furniture is original. You can't sit on it. However, two little girls were Girl Scouts. She let them sit with there Mom to take a picture. That was so wonderful of her.
