Synopsis

The Telfair Museum of Art's Owens-Thomas House in Savannah, Georgia, is considered one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the United States. Named a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, the Owens-Thomas House was designed by British architect William Jay and was built from 1816 to 1819. In addition to its architectural significance, the house features fine furnishings and decorative arts from the early nineteenth century. The house's rare two-story urban slave quarters alone make it a must-see stop on any tour of historic downtown Savannah. The Owens-Thomas House boasts a storied past with political triumphs and personal tragedies, offering visitors unique insight into a young American world as it evolved in the early nineteenth century.

Tania June Sammons is the curator of the Owens-Thomas House and Decorative Arts at the Telfair Museum of Art. Sammons has published numerous essays on fine and decorative arts in publications such as Magazine Antiques, and Aurora, The Journal of the History of Art.
