About Deric Beil

A Victorian-Italianate house, 'Colophon' was built in 1886 for William Holt, a native of Boone Hill, North Carolina, who was in the Battle of Gettysburg (55th North Carolina Regiment), and was severely wounded in the heroic charge of July 3rd. After the war he moved to Wilmington and then, in 1877, to Savannah to found a cotton-brokerage firm. He also served on the Vestry of St. John's Episcopal Church and as Secretary of the Georgia Historical Society.

Deric Beil purchased this house in 1992

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay in the historic district. You can't beat the location - it was so fun to walk in Forsyth park every morning with our pup! There is plenty of space and we really enjoyed having a kitchen. The owners are warm and welcoming, and they made sure we had everything we needed. We can't wait to come back to Savannah!
