Constructed on a lot overlooking Lafayette Square, the Andrew Low House reflects the urban genteel life of 19th-century Savannah. The upstairs features bedrooms for the owners, distinguished guests and children and the historic furniture is still preserved. In one of the home’s most innovative details is a 500-gallon cistern in the attic. Water from the cistern plumbed the kitchen and the bathroom. This was one of the city’s earliest indoor plumbing systems.
Built in 1848 for Andrew Low, a wealthy cotton merchant from Scotland, the Andrew Low House is a classic and elegant Savannah mansion. Facing Lafayette Square, its stucco and brick design meshes beautifully with the rich history of the area. The Andrew Low House preserves one of the finest collections of period furnishings relating to the history of Savannah and the Low family. It includes examples of works by some of America’s most prestigious furniture makers.
