    I looked up after I saw question regarding the Bowden Home. From what I’ve gathered on three sites, it was the Mercer Mansion; ( Now called: Mercer- William Home. 429 Bull Street in the West end of Monterey Square in Savannah, Ga. Alot of the same locations were used in Midnight in the Garden of good and evil. Theres quite a story on how this place came to be. General Hugh W. Mercer who was the great grandfather of Johnny Mercer, the famous songwriter/ singer. Look it up. I hope you can look up further info. I have more but you should be able to locate now. Pinterest was one site,
