King Tisdell Cottage

514 E. Huntingdon St.
Savannah, GA 31401


This beautifully restored 1896 Victorian cottage is a museum highlighting the contributions of African-Americans to our nation's history, including the role African-Americans played during the Civil War. The architecture is significant for the unusually intricate gingerbread ornamentation of the porch and dormers. The King-Tisdell Cottage is an African-American heritage museum named for its African-American owners, Eugene and Sarah King, and Sarah King and Robert Tisdell. This museum of African-American Savannah and the Sea Islands is owned and operated by the King-Tisdell Cottage Foundation, which also owns and operates the Negro Heritage Trail Tours and the Beach Institute on the corner of Price and Harris Streets.
