      About this Savannah, Georgia tour

      It's not just Southern hospitality, moss-draped trees, and the general slower pace that explains Savannahs charm; it's the architecture and history, too. Three of Savannah's most historic homes, filled with antique furniture, lush gardens, and tall tales are on today's tour.

      You'll get your start at one of the finest examples of Federal-style architecture in all of Savannah. The Davenport House was built in 1820 with all the splendor of a New England mansion. Master builder Isaiah Davenport had settled in Savannah from his native Rhode Island, and set to work building his family home. But within a century, one of the finest houses on the block turned into one of its eyesores, when the once-stately mansion became a seedy boarding house. Thanks to Partners in Preservation, it's been restored to its former glory.

      You'll also see the childhood home of one of America's first feminists, Juliette Gordon Low. The Lows were one of Savannah's wealthiest and most well-to-do families, and it really shows in detailed areas like the carved wooden staircase that spirals up this opulent home. In the spirit of Juliette's belief in the potential of every girl, there's an interactive exhibit called Girls Writing the World; A Library Reimagined: a collection of books by, for and about women.

      Juliette Gordon married into another successful family, and the home of her father-in-law, Andrew Low, is another stop on the tour. This Grecian-inspired villa is home to one of Savannah's oldest planned gardens: a lovely spot for a stroll on a sunny day, perfumed with the scent of Southern favorites like camellias and verbena. As best as can be determined, the garden appears much as it did more than a century ago.

      The Davenport cat

      In the most haunted city in America, even felines can become phantoms. The ghost of the Davenport cat was first spotted at the Davenport House by a boarder. Many visitors have reported seeing a large cat skulking around the premises, some saying they've felt it purring as it rubbed against their legs and at least one lapsing into an allergy-induced sneezing fit.
