1. Barnard House Marker
Inscription. This federal style house was constructed in the late Eighteenth Century as the residence of William Barnard, nephew of Sir John Barnard who, while serving in the British Parliament distinguished himself as a patron of the Georgia Colony

The house was purchased in 1817 by the Methodist Movement in Savannah as its first parsonage. The Reverend James Russell, first occupant of the parsonage was responsible for the construction of Wesley Chapel, which stood just south of this property until its removal in 1954. Bishop Francis Asbury was a guest in this house in November, 1813. It now serves as a Presbyterian Manse.
