    The Owens-Thomas House was designed by William Jay and is considered to be one of the finest examples of the style in the nation. Tours are available for $8 from 10-5, Monday-Saturday, Sunday from 1-5 and it houses many of the original furnishings from the Thomas family.

    Old Shipping Heritage

    Ship Supplies and Warehouse

    Savannah was founded in 1733 and since that time has maintained a principle industry of seafarers and shipping. The SS Savannah was the first steamer to sail the Atlantic Ocean, leaving Savannah in 1817 and took 27 days to get to Liverpool.

    While that might be a unique trivia point, it does not change the fact that sailboats, riverboats and others have frequented Savannah's ports for three centuries. This 'Ship Supplies and Warehouse' storefront gives evidence to the long alignment to the sea.
