Garden Rental

Originally created by the Trustees Garden Club as a bicentennial project and revamped in 1998 by renowned English landscape architect Penelope Hobhouse, the Davenport House garden today is a place of beauty and peaceful solitude in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District. It is a wonderful place to spend a few moments reflecting on the things you may have learned during your tour of the Museum.

Our garden is available for weddings, parties and other special events year-round! It is the perfect spot for private, intimate events.

Alcohol is allowed but please note that you are required to observe all state and local regulations regarding the consumption of alcohol while on the premises. Refer to our rental policies for more information.
