Owens-Thomas House Tours

Owens-Thomas House
The Owens-Thomas House is considered by many architecture historians to be one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America. Built in 1816 by William Jay, one of America’s first formally trained architects, the house stands as a monument to the ancient southern aristocracy. Currently under operation by the Telfair Museum of Art, and the Owens-Thomas house is more than just a passing interest – from the slave quarters to brick ovens, to dazzling symmetries of light and space, to the rotating exhibits of popular contemporary Southern artists, the Owens-Thomas House earns the Certificate of Excellence awards.
