The Sorrel-Weed House was designed by Charles Clusky in 1835. The house was completed in 1838. The house has received national attention for it’s role as a filming location for Forrest Gump (the opening shot of the feather floating above Savannah was filmed from this house’s roof), as well as being featured in a 2006 episode of HGTV’s “If Walls Could Talk,” and various paranormal activity shows. The house was built primarily in the Greek Revival style, but does feature some Regency style influences.

The house is now partially open to the public as a museum. The Sorrel-Weed House is open daily from  10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Guided tours of the house are $10.00 per person.

Getting to the Sorrel-Weed House from the Catherine Ward House Inn by foot is easy. From door to door, it takes as little as 8-12 minutes to walk between the two.
