Andrew Low House Tour

The Andrew Low House can be seen by docent led tours, which depart at 30 minute intervals (on the hour and half hour) every day. Tours discuss the history of the house and the Low family, showing how a wealthy family in Savannah would have lived in the 19th century.
The home was built in 1848-1849 by architect John S Norris a notable architect from New York and designed in the Greek Revival style, with a mixture of Revival and Italianate details. The home occupies the entire southwest trust lot fronting on Lafayette Square.
The Andrew Low House has one of the few surviving original gardens created in 19th-century Savannah, and the only one open to the public. The design of the parterre gardens dates from the mid century, shortly after the completion of the house. Their layout and planting plans have been preserved ever since, first by the Low family and later by the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America, the current owners of the house
