The Owens-Thomas house is rich in interesting architecture! It is all symmetry! To me, the most interesting piece of work inside the house is the "bridge from the front of the house to the back - connecting the old, original structure, to the addition of...More

The tour was more inclusive of slave history than I expected and I loved it. The carriage house/slave quarters brought me here. Great stop and informative!

It's very interesting hearing the history of the historical homes in Savannah. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and able to answer the questions asked of her. Because this is a two story home, you will need to climb stairs.

That's the only way you can tour the house is with the tour guide and is part of the admission price. It seem the tours run about every 15-20 min.
