Mercer-Williams House Museum

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 2 March 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Mercer House, now called the Mercer-Williams House Museum, is located at 429 Bull Street and stands at the southwestern end of Monterey Square, in Savannah, Georgia. The house was the scene of the shooting death of Jim Williams' assistant, Danny Hansford, a story that is retold in the 1994 John Berendt book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". The house is currently owned by Dorothy Kingery, Williams' sister, and is open to the public for tours.

Oh, yes, Steven. We deliberately watched that movie before our visit the next day to Savannah, and so were delighted when we saw this house. I love how you are showing all the "usual suspects" of Savannah! :)
