In the heart of Savannah’s celebrated Historic District, on the northeast quadrant of Oglethorpe Square, stands a grand old mansion, known today as the Owens-Thomas House.
An impressive two-story structure on a raised basement, it was completed in 1819 by the architect William Jay from Bath, England. He drew the house plans prior to arriving in Savannah. His vision was to build a home that reminded him of Bath. The home contains sophisticated architectual detail and Bath stone.
Local attorney and politician, George Welshman Owens, purchased the home in 1830 for $10,000. His family maintained the home unitl 1951 when his grandaughter, Margaret Thomas, donated the house to the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Today, the Owens-Thomas House is the best-preserved example of Jay’s work in Savannah, and one of the best English Regency-style homes in the country.
