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.

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.

When you visit the house as a part of the ghost tour you not only walk through the house and are filled in on the house historically, you also get the full experience of Savannah after the sun goes down.

The Andrew Low House is beautifully maintained and well preserves the history of the Low family. Our tour guide, Mary Ann, was very knowledgeable of the family's history. We will visit the home again upon our return to Savannah.

We went as apart of the ghost tour. It was a very beautiful house and very interesting visit! I would like to visit during the day portion of the tour!

Was a stop on our nighttime ghost tour, nice historical place to visit. Was a little spooked on the tour but I'm sure it's lovely during the day.

We came to this house on a horrible wet day shortly after Hurricane Matthew had passed through the city, and were really glad we did. Even better was the fact that the receptionist suggested a combo ticket with the Davenport House and the Maritime museum, as the savings on the combined entrance fees was well worth it, and we needed...

Andrew Low was Scottish, and came out to Savannah where he made his fortune as a cotton merchant. He commissioned a New Yorrk architect to design this beautifully proportioned ante-bellum family home in 1848 - and it was competed the following year. There is virtually nothing in the hose which is an original Andrew Low possession; however, the National Society... More
