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.

Toured parlors, dining room, study, upstairs 4 bedrooms & bathroom. Would have been cool to see the basement kitchen & servant's quarters but that was not part of the tour. Docents were very knowledgeable & friendly.

We enjoyed our tour but made the mistake of arriving too late in the morning. There were four tours going on at once and we had to wait. The house us beautiful. Don't miss the special picture on the landing of the stairs. Our guide was excellent! You can buy a three house tour for a discount but spread the... More

We love to visit house museums wherever we travel and the Andrew Low House is one of the best house museums we have ever visited. We purchased the triple house tour ticket at a good savings for the three. Because the house stayed in the family until after Juliette Gordon Low's death this house is in fantastic condition and there... More

This house has never fallen into disrepair, and the house has many of its original furnishings as well as original doors, light fixtures, windows, etc. Robert E Lee was friends with Andrew Low. Lee stayed here many times and there is a room named for him. This is also the former home of the Girl Scouts founder, Juliette Gordon Low.

On our last trip to Savannah, we visited both the birthplace of Juliette Gordon and the home she lived in after marriage. The home and gardens were beautiful. We were impressed with the Docent who was very knowledgeable about this home and Juliette's childhood home.

We really enjoyed the inside look at the historic house and furnishings. The tour guide gave us nice background and helped understand a bit about the family.

Andrew Low House was a great place to visit. It is a beatiful house. The tour inside was very informative. There are plenty things to see while inside. One of the best in Savannah, in my opinion.

My wife and I took this tour with a girl scout troop visiting from Wisconsin or was it Iowa? At any rate, it was only eight of us, Christmas week. The guide, a native of Savannah, was cordial and informative. The history of the Lowe family, and the ill-fated marriage of Juliette Gordon to Andrew Lowe was discussed. The mansion,... More

This house along with the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and the Davenport house are sold on a combo ticket that every Girl Scout or ex-Girl Scout should purchase. Never having served, I was drug here by my wife. I must admit, I enjoyed it. The house is a beautiful little gem that gives fascinating facts about one of Savannah's most... More
