A National Historic Landmark, the stately former residence is now a historic house museum. The Owens-Thomas House 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.
The Arts & Entertainment Tour includes admission to the renowned Telfair Museum of Art which offers three unique buildings: the Jepson Center for the Arts, Telfair Academy, and Owens-Thomas House. In addition to a gift with purchase at the Jepson Center at the Arts Museum Store, this tour offers a one-of-a-kind "movie set location" tour of Savannah through Savannah Movie Tours. Visit over 60 movie locations and view movie clips on LCD screens while passing the same locations including where Forrest Gump sat on the park bench, the Mercer House, and Leopold's Ice Cream. A true Hollywood experience!
