Glistening by candlelight, the Federal-style home welcomes visitors to an experience emphasizing the end-of-year celebrations of early 19th century Savannahians, including the Davenport household, who lived in the fine brick home on Columbia Square. Light refreshments, music and skilled interpreters, who show visitors through the home, are among the highlights of the presentation. A demonstration of 19th century dancing will take place at the end of the evening.
The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.
