Tips

  • Do not waste your money on this tour. The antiques are nice but the 'garden' is a big disappointment. And it is very basic for the price you pay! Do a trolley or walking tour instead!
  • Say Hi to Cookie, the house's cat and one of the current residents.
  • Made famous in "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil," this home was originally built for Hugh Mercer by John Norris in 1860... completed 1871 by Muller & Bruyn.www.architecturalsavannah.com
  • Loved Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil!! Great house...great story. Lovely antiques and so full of history
  • Beautiful house and very informative tour. I had never read the book or watched the film so it was all new to me. No picture taking is a bummer but dont let that deter you.
  • Closed on Sundays
  • Antiques and history of building
  • Impressive restoration and antique collection. You'll have to ask your tour guide about the murder since they seem to gloss over that on the tour.
  • Great tour!
  • It's a good tour but you only see a small area.
  • The tour is ok. You only get to go through the first level, which is fantastic. But not being able to see the kitchen or second story of the house spoiled the experience.
  • Very impressive!
  • I watched Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil immediately before visiting. It made the visit even more spectacular. I want to live in this home!!
  • Creepy! Be sure to watch the movie Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil!
  • Jim Williams allegedly shot Danny Hansford in the study, a crime that inspired Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Green Guide Editor
  • Normally I avoid house tours but I really enjoyed this one. Perfect length at 35 minutes, personable tour guide, and beautiful house filled with stories.
  • Find the room where "THE INCIDENT" happened.
  • It's mostly just a tour of all of Jim Williams antiques on the first floor of the home. Still cool to see the house made popular by the movie.
  • Always a must do!
