The property's first owner was Charles Green, a cotton merchant.

At this time, none of the original furniture is on display at the house. After the Union troops captured Savannah Georgia in 1864, Major General William T. Sherman occupied the house and used it as a headquarters until the end of the American Civil War.

In 1892, local politician and judge Peter Meldrim purchased the property and lived in it a number of decades. In 1943, his heirs sold the house to the St. John's Episcopal Church, which is located next door.

It is an example of Gothic Revival style and has a cast-iron porch, oriel windows and an imposing front cast-iron fence. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
Hours
Tours of the house are given during the day, and the church uses it for wedding receptions and after-church events.
