The western edge of the Savannah is home to a group of scenic late-Victorian-style buildings known as “the Magnificent Seven Houses.” These houses are Queen’s Royal College, the residences of the Anglican bishop and the Roman Catholic archbishop, Whitehall, Mille Fleurs, Roomor, and Stollmeyer’s Castle.
