This beautiful characteristic pink homestead at the heart of
Savannah's historic district was the first of the city's
architectural treasures to be saved for posterity. It was the
threatened demolition of this house that goaded the city's
residents to form a fund to preserve Savannah's historic heritage.
The house was built between 1815 and 1820 by Isaiah Davenport, a
master builder. It features a semi-circular staircase with
wrought-iron trim leading up to the recessed front door. Inside the
polished hardwood floors gleam and the mansion is furnished
befitting the period with Hepplewhite, Chippendale and Sheraton
