Updated December 20, 2022 at 7:17 p.m.

Davenport House Museum (DHM), a property of Historic Savannah Foundation, announced the return of its annual Holiday Evening Tours by Candlelight event celebrating the coming of the New Year as it would have been observed 200 years ago. 

This family friendly event will feature costumed docents telling the story of early nineteenth century holiday festivities. Light refreshments, music and skilled interpreters are among the highlights of the presentation. Please be aware that this tour requires guests to be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in dimly lit rooms.

“Attending one of our holiday evening tours is a terrific way to experience our historic city when it is at its most beautiful.” said Davenport House Museum Director Jamie Credle. “Many enjoy it so much they make it a tradition returning with their families.” 

DHM asks that patrons call about scheduling a time to visit or indicate on their online ticket purchase the time when they hope to enter the house. The mission of the Davenport House Museum is to preserve and interpret the American Federal-style house and the artifacts within, built by Master Builder Isaiah Davenport for his household, with an emphasis on the years 1820-27. 

The 50-minute experience will take place at the historic house. Online reservations in advance are strongly encouraged with a reserved date and time for attending noted.

To purchase tickets, please visit davenporthousemuseum.org, or visit the Davenport House Museum Shop on Broughton St.
