The Weed-Sorrel house has several very interesting distinctions. Most recently, the house had been incorporated into a high end retail strip-mall. Fortunately, the property was purchased in 1996 and the retail construction was carefully deconstructed in a major restoration project. The Weed-Sorrel house has also been featured on the Discovery Channel as one of the most haunted homes in the US. On a more substantial note, General Lee made the house his headquarters when he was in Savannah during the Civil War.
