Step Inside Sorrel Weed Mansion
Both guests and staff alike will agree a winter Ghost Tour in Savannah’s Sorrel Weed Mansion is fast becoming a new favorite for both locals and visitors. Those seeking to experience Savannah Ghost Tours need not looking any further than through the gates of 6 West Harris Street.
2016 sees the team here at Sorrel Weed inviting guests in from the cold to join us beside the flickering light of a warm crackling fire. Just inside the courtyard between the Mansion and its Carriage House. Never before in all our years has so many new programs invited such numbers of visitors to our rooms and halls like this season has. Never before have so many incredibly talented individuals pulled together practicing their craft and skill within the art of Storytelling. And never before have our guests enjoyed themselves as much as they are today.
As our Summer and Fall seasons draw to a close and winter begins to settle in the low country, the Ghosts within America’s most Haunted City begin to groan just a bit louder as the bitter cold seeps into our streets and squares.
And with that bite of cold air nipping at the cheeks of visitors to Savannah’s Historic District those visitors themselves have a few options for getting out of the cold and stepping inside. And those looking to explore Savannah’s Ghostly side can find it here in the courtyard of Savannah’s most truly haunted attraction, Sorrel Weed Mansion. Because it is inside that courtyard folks strolling in the early evening air can find both a warm crackling fire to sit beside and a treasure trove of passionate storytellers practicing their craft free of charge for the sheer pleasure of sharing the art of a good story.
Any Savannah Ghost Tour may lead you by the Sorrel Mansion sharing folklore and legend, but only one Savannah Ghost Tour is going to take you inside and share with you the true history as it unfolded. And that is the craft of Storytellers found at Sorrel Weed Museum & Tours.
One of the best features for guests visiting Savannah in the winter months is the ability to enjoy local haunts among limited crowds.
