MERCER HOUSE-429 Bull Street

Once home to Savannah’s most famous antiques dealer, James A. (Jim) Williams, the Mercer House stands as an iconic example of Renaissance Revival architecture by John S. Norris. Commissioned by General Hugh W. Mercer, great-grandfather of the celebrated songwriter Johnny Mercer, he sold the unfinished home to John R. Wilder, so no Mercer ever lived there.

Jim Williams purchased the home in 1969 and began a two-year restoration of the house. It is decorated with objects from Williams’s private collection including Regency and Empire furniture, 18th and 19th century portraits by Gilbert Stuart and Thomas Hudson, and a wide collection of curiosities from around the globe.
