Andrew Low commissioned New York architect John Norris to design and construct his house in 1848. Norris came to Savannah to design the Custom House on Bay Street and remained in Savannah to build many desirable residences with the latest in technology and luxury. The Italianate exterior features intricate cast iron railings and side balconies contrasting with the smooth stuccoed brick walls. The well proportioned rooms are decorated with elaborate plaster cornices and carved woodwork. The delicate balance of exterior restraint and opulent interior resulted in an elegant villa for the family.

Low not High

A beautiful old southern home. Docents who really know the history of the home and its owners. Beautifully maintained.

When my family and I got to the Andrew Low House it was raining and we were happy to be inside. We thought going on a nice tour would be a great activity in the rain. The tour was empty just my wife, my kids and I. The tour guide was extremely boring and we couldn't understand anything he said... More

The Andrew Low house gave us a real sense of what old Savannah was all about. The rooms were beautifully appointed and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend a visit.

My husband and I went by this home on our segway tour, with our guide stopping here to give us a little history. Andrew Low house, was built around the mid 1840's in Lafayette Square, and is right around the corner from St. John the Baptist Cathedral. Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts, was born in Savannah... More

This was the first house museum I went through and I was not disappointed. There are such beautiful and interesting details that clearly show the architects knowledge of solutions to common problems for that time in history.

We didn't know what to expect but we weren't disappointed. The house seemed so homely, as if the owners had just popped out and were expected back at any time. We felt we could just move in and continue where they left off. The rooms were tastefully decorated and furnished and very photogenic. Dottie, our guide, full of information, and... More

we went as part of the evening ghost tour. Really did not get to see very much of the house. I understand about the concern for preserving the historic artifacts, but at least give the folks access to see things like the kitchen. We got to see the upstairs bedrooms (you could not go into them), the downstairs dining room,... More

One of the reasons we visit Savannah is to tour historic homes, and this was was really good. And we were pleased that it was one of the few houses that allowed us to take pictures inside (although I took way too many to post). Tour guide was very informative.

We enjoyed the architecture of the home. Also the historical significance of General Robert E Lee visiting during the Civil war makes it a definite must stop.

Our innkeeper recommended this home tour because of our interest in antiques. We were somewhat disappointed. I found some of the other home tours to be much more beautiful and interesting than this one. I also expected more reference to Juliette Gordon Low but her connection to this home is definitely downplayed.

Thank Shellco
