Mercer-Williams House
912-236-6352 https://mercerhouse.com/

The Mercer House was designed by New York architect John S. Norris for General Hugh W. Mercer, great grandfather of Johnny Mercer.  Construction of the house began in 1860, was interrupted by the Civil War and was later completed, circa 1868, by the new owner, John Wilder.  In 1969, Jim Williams, one of Savannah’s earliest and most dedicated private restorationists, bought the then vacant house and began a two-year restoration.  This house is one of the more than 50 houses Mr. Williams saved during his thirty-year career in historic restoration in Savannah and the Low Country.  The Mercer-Williams house was made even more famous thanks to the 1994 book, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", which focused on the life and actions of Jim Williams.

Admission: $12.50 for adults, $8.00 for students
