The Andrew Low House, designed by architect John Norris, was built in 1848 by Andrew Low II, for his young family. It was enjoyed by his many famous guests including General Robert E. Lee and William Makepeace Thackery and is best known through his daughter-in-law, Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts of America there in 1912.
The Green-Meldrim House , also designed by Norris, was constructed as a residence for Mr. Charles Green, who came to Savannah from England in 1833. The house served as headquarters for Union General William T. Sherman as he concluded his March to the Sea in 1864. Mr. Green hoped to protect his home and his cotton from destruction by inviting the Civil War commander to use his home while in Savannah.
