The Bird-Baldwin House has a rich, southern history. Built by Lewis Bird in 1838, it is the oldest home in Savannah South of Liberty Street. Bird, a prominent Savannah attorney, began the construct but tragically perished with his entire family on the Steamboat Pulaski when it exploded and sank off the coast of North Carolina on June 14, 1838. Bird's mother completed the house and sold it to his law partner, Mr. Baldwin, who lived in it for many years.
The house was commandeered and occupied by General Sherman’s staff as a temporary headquarters in December 1864, after Sherman’s infamous March to the Sea. The Bird-Baldwin House survived many subsequent transformations, including time as a boarding house and tavern known as “Harry’s Place,” before finally being restored and renovated.
This Savannah condo offers soaring ceilings, Savannah heart pine flooring, and large windows. The kitchen has everything you need to enjoy a meal, or to warm up any leftovers from Savannah’s extensive selection of restaurants. After a long day of sightseeing, unwind in the stately jetted tub before curling up in the luxurious King sized bed.
You’ll be a short walk from the Savannah Visitor’s Center, where you can easily pick up a guided trolley tour. While you’re out, make sure you stop in at The Distillery Ale House for a pint. With 21 rotating taps and over 120 bottles and hand-crafted Spirits, they’re sure to have something for every palate. The foodie in all of us requires that you have lunch at Soho South Cafe. Dishes like their Seared Salmon BLT (with spinach, tomato, bacon, and a tangy garlic aioli on a toasted honey wheat roll ) and Howlin’ Chicken (fried chicken breast with fried pickles, cheddar cheese, and house made jalapeno ranch) will make you glad you did!
