Davenport House Museum – “Stranger Than Fiction!”

October 9th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Davenport House Museum – "Stranger Than Fiction" Halloween 2015Savannah’s Davenport House Museum is always a great place to visit but, as Halloween approaches, it becomes even more enticing as strange tales from Savannah’s rich history bubble to the surface. Relive 19th century mysteries at The Davenport House Museum’s “Stranger Than Fiction!”

The Isaiah Davenport House Museum is one of Savannah’s portals to the past: a historic building restored to its 1820’s glory for the sake of preservation as well as education.

Initially constructed around 1820, the Davenport House was originally the home of Savannah artisan Isaiah Davenport and his family. Later it was a boarding house, and even later still, a neglected building in need of either demolition or restoration. Luckily a group of concerned citizens formed the Historic Savannah Foundation with an eye on saving the Davenport House as it’s first project and the rest is … a very special history museum!

The 13th Annual Gingerbread Village Competition DisplayOnce a year, there’s a section of Savannah where the houses, businesses, the streets and fences, even the people and animals are not all just edible but sweetly so – and some are even frosted!

No, I’ve not gone right out of my tiny, little mind: I’m talking about the annual Gingerbread Village Competition, a free event sponsored by the Savannah Harbor Foundation!

Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon 2012

November 12th, 2012 by Joe Celento

McMillan Inn was proud to host six runners in this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.  Our guests participated in the half-marathon, and the full marathon!

Each race participant received a special goodie bag upon arrival, and a light breakfast of bagels, fruit, and quiche the morning of the race. Some of the runners enjoyed pasta the night before the race at Leocis italian restaurant one block from McMillan Inn.   The race began at Bay Street only 8/10ths of a mile away from the Inn, a great warm up route however  the Owner, Joe shuttled the guests up to the starting point saving them that one extra mile!  The race ended at Forsyth Park, just two blocks away from the McMillan Inn, which also hosted live bands all day.  Our runners arrived back at the Inn exhausted but happy with their performance, and we had celebratory peach tea, butter cakes, and cookies waiting  upon their return.

A jovial atmosphere surrounded our breakfast table the following morning as guests enjoyed our legendary full hot gourmet breakfast and recounted the details of the race.  We are very inspired by their dedication and hope to see them again next year!

If you or someone you know is participating in the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and would like to stay with us, please remember to book early at McMillan Inn as rooms fill up quickly!
