The Davenport House Museum is a carefully restored landmark showcasing what life was like in Savannah 200 years ago – but the Davenports were not the only family living under this storied roof back then.

The Historic Savannah Foundation, which owns and operates the Davenport House Museum, launched an extensive renovation project in December to install a new exhibit that will recognize the enslaved people who lived and worked at the home.
