Green-Meldrim House--page 1 (of two pages)

John S. Norris
1853






Widely praised as the most outstanding Gothic Revival house in Savannah (and possibly in Georgia or even the South), this house was built by Charles Green, and later owned (1892) by Judge Meldrim and members of his family until it was sold to the St. John's Episcopal Church to be used as a parish house. It is also a National Heritage landmark. It does have a historic past as well since General Sherman stayed here for more than a month as a guest of Charles Green during the Civil War.
