Unlock the gate to your secret garden


The Museum’s courtyard garden is landscaped with typically coastal Georgia plantings including camellias, azaleas, jasmine and crepe myrtles. The overall color scheme is green and white with highlights of other colors throughout the seasons. Features include an arbor under which numerous couples have exchanged their vows, a parterre edged in boxwood, Italian pots and teak benches.

The Davenport House Museum offers two venues for weddings, receptions, meetings and other special occasions. There is the Museum’s lush courtyard garden and the adjacent Kennedy Pharmacy, which is a restored late nineteenth century building.

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.
