Union Army Headquarters 1865This building, now the quarters of a private Club, was erected in 1857 for Edmund Molyneux, British consul at Savannah, and served as his residence and as the Consulate until Molyneux's return to England in 1863. In 1865 the Molyneux house was appropriated by the Union Army as Headquarters for General O.O. Howard and his successor, General William F. Barry. Representatives of the family claimed that furnishings valued at more than $10,000, including part of the famous Molyneux wine cellar, were damaged or removed during the Federal occupation.
