The stately Federal-style home, built by Master Carpenter Isaiah Davenport for his household, provides a glimpse into 1820s domestic life in the port city of Savannah. Fine interior plasterwork, authentically restored period rooms and a spectacular staircase are highlights of a visit to the Isaiah Davenport House Museum. The saving of the Davenport House from demolition in 1955 was the first effort of Historic Savannah Foundation, ushering in the preservation renaissance of the coastal city. The museum's recent restoration was recognized with a Preserve America Presidential Award.
