Fodor's Review

This exuberant Greek-revival mansion was the home of William Scarborough, a wealthy early 19th-century merchant and one of the principal owners of the Savannah, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic. The structure, with its portico capped by half-moon windows, is another of architect William Jay's notable contributions to the Historic District. These days, it houses the Ships of the Sea Museum, with displays of model ships and exhibits detailing maritime

history. The ambitious North Garden nearly doubled the original walled courtyard's size and provides ample space for naturalist-led walks and outdoor concerts.
