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.

Nice bit of history

So glad you took advantage of Free Museum Sunday. We do hope you will revisit during normal business hours. Did you know we had over 600 people visit this past Sunday? The intent is to give a glimpse into what we have to offer. Please come back next time you are in Savannah. More

Beautiful architecture, period furniture and dishes, family photos. The docents really know the history of the house, the family, and Savannah at the time.

I visited during the Ghost tour and heard the scary ghost stories that occur in the house. The rooms are roped off but can see from the hall.

The house is in beautiful condition. The story of the house and the Lowe family is so interesting with both their trials and many successes. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly and give you all the time you need to view and ask questions. Highly recommend.

We took the ghosts and gravestones night trolley tour which included this historical gem. The house was beautifully restored and the period tour givers were wonderful story tellers.

So far this is the favorite house I've toured in Savannah so far. The history tour is informative and interesting and the inside of this house is just gorgeous! I did this tour as part of a 3 for 1 deal along with the Juliette Gordon Low House and the Davenport House.
