Davenport House

In 1954 seven Savannah women saved this house from demolition literally hours before being razed by a positioned wrecking ball. Locals mark the event as the start of the restoration of Savannah. The house was built between 1815 and 1820 by Isaiah Davenport, who died not long after its completion. The Davenport House is reportedly one of the finest examples of Federal style construction in the US.
