Event Details

This event finished on 31 October 2015

Every weekend in October the Davenport House Museum will have 90-minute tours to see historical entertainment on the many extraordinary ideas, beliefs and objects with which people in the 1820s would have been familiar. While visitors maneuver the historic site they will come into contact with those who lived there in 1828 as they hear about what thrilled, scared and horrified Savannahians of that time. Special attention will be paid to spiritual convictions of Lowcountry African Americans of the past. Tickets are $22 in advance and $25 at the door. For more information about the Stranger Than Fiction tours or the museum itself, call the Davenport House Museum at (912) 236-8097.
