Savannah Green-Meldrim House We started a stroll and came upon a small sign in front of a classic old house that said 'open' so we went in, and just then a tour was starting, so we joined up.

We were visiting the Green-Meldrim House built in the Greek Revival style and you can see it in this model of the area in the 1800s to the right of the church. The church owns it now. They use it for all kinds of church events and Church Ladies run the tours.

This home served as the headquarters for General Sherman from December 1864 and according to the ladies, Sherman's relationship with the hospitality of the citizens of Savannah was why the city was spared destruction in the war. Another version is that they just gave up instantly to save their city.
