The story of the horse is woven into the fabric of Savannah and very much still present in the carriage house at the Owens-Thomas House.  In this lecture, Elizabeth Jamieson, an independent researcher, lecturer, art-historian and curatorial advisor to the National Trust on horse-drawn carriages and historic stables, will discuss her research discoveries made in the process of writing her soon to be published book: Travelling in Style – The British Carriage in Town and Country.
