AboutAndrew Low, a wealthy cotton merchant of Liverpool and Savannah built this mansion of classical mid-19th century design about 1848. John Norris (1804-1876) of New York, who designed other outstanding buildings in Savannah, was the architect. The front garden is one of only three in the city retaining its original design, including two hourglass shaped flower beds described by William Makepeace Thackeray during his visit in 1853. The house also serves as the headquarters for the Georgia Society.
