Built as a beautiful Regency style mansion in 1819, the Owens-Thomas House, along with its adjacent gardens, carriage house, and slave quarters, allows you to explore the complicated relationships between the most and least powerful people in the city of Savannah in the early 19th century.

Guided tours of the home and carriage house are offered every 20 minutes, seven days a week. Tours are limited to 16 people and often sell out quickly; we recommend arriving early in the day.

Tickets include a visit to each of our three sites and are valid for one week from time of purchase.

Only a seven-minute walk from Telfair Museums’ other two sites, this site is an excellent start to a day filled with art, history, and architecture. On our guided tours, you’ll explore period rooms full of exquisite decorative arts, interactive exhibits for all ages, and historic spaces filled with stories, including one of the earliest intact urban slave quarters in the South. Throughout the tour, you’ll learn about the people, both free and enslaved, who lived and worked on the site 200 years ago.
