“One of the finest English Regency homes in America”
The Owens-Thomas House is considered by architectural historians to be one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America. Inspired by classical antiquity, this style of architecture takes its name from England’s King George IV, who ruled as Prince Regent from 1811 to 1820. Telfair: Owens-Thomas House is a historic house museum that boasts a decorative arts collection comprised primarily of Owens family furnishings, along with American and European objects dating from 1750-1830. The site also includes a beautiful English-inspired parterre garden and an original carriage house—which contains one of the earliest intact urban slave quarters in the South.
If you enjoy history and architecture, you'll be happy you checked out this place. The tour takes you through the whole house, including the kitchens and slave quarters. Much of the original furniture is still in the house, and the tour guides are very knowledgeable on everything inside. I've been more than once and it's always enjoyable.
