The Green–Meldrim House is a historic house at 14 West Macon Street, on the northwest corner of Madison Square, in Savannah, Georgia. Built in the 1850s, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1976 as one of the American South's finest and most lavish examples of Gothic Revival architecture. The house is owned by the adjacent St. John's Episcopal Church, which offers tours and uses it as a meeting and reception space.

Nov 15, 2017: Looks great from the outside. Wish they would have posted online that they were closed to tourists today. Nov 16, 2017: we came back to tour the house today. Arrived at 3:32 and the door was locked. Someone heard us trying to open the door and answered. On old woman with short grey hair answered and said they close at 3:30. I asked if we could still join the tour since we were just a couple of minutes late. She said no because there was nobody else on the tour. The last tour is supposed to be at 3:30PM.
The Green-Meldrim House has recently acquired much of the original furnishings from the time of the first owner, Charles Green. It is fascinating to see the objects used by the family in the 1850s and by General Sherman during the Civil War, when the house was used as the Union general's personal headquarters. Even the original china and silver is on display. The interior is truly magnificent, with rich decorative detail. Definitely a "must-see" in Savannah.
Beautiful home, very creative from an architectural perspective. $10 recommended entry fee.
Awesome tour and knowledgeable staff. Interesting to anyone who loves history.
Very nice tour.
