Green-Meldrim House

Description

Savannah’s 2.2-square-mile Historic District contains some of the nation’s most important examples of 18th- and 19th-century architecture. Among the noteworthy buildings is the Green-Meldrim House, where General William Tecumseh Sherman stayed during Union occupation on the March to the Sea. Sherman considered Savannah too pretty to burn. Instead, he sent a letter to Abraham Lincoln giving him the city as a Christmas gift in 1864. Built in the early 1850s for a cotton magnate, the house (on the west side of Madison Square) is a beautiful example of antebellum Gothic Revival architecture; tours are offered.
