The Owens-Thomas House, now operating as a historic house museum by Telfair Museums, is one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture. This antique mansion derived its name from England’s King George IV who ruled as Prince Regent from 1811-20. Designed by English architect William Jay, this house acted as a residence of Richard Richardson and his family. This historic house museum features intricate arts collection that comprises primarily of Owens family furnishings as well as American and European artefacts dating back to 1750. You will also love the English-themed parterre garden and a carriage house containing one of the significant urban slave quarters. You can take a guided tour that takes place in twenty minute intervals.
