Savannah, Ga – Almost a hundred years before women in America had the right to vote, Eliza Jewett was building homes in Georgia.  Built atop what the Coastal Heritage Society archeologist, Rita Elliot, determined to be British barracks of the Revolutionary War, is the home Jewett built for herself in 1842.  The grand Greek Revival overlooks Madison Square with its towering moss draped live oak trees in what is today the Landmark District of Savannah.  Just across the square sits the Green-Meldrin House that served as General Sherman’s headquarters during the Civil War.

This stately home is believed to be designed by John Norris, one of Savannah’s most important 19th Century designers.  His designs can be seen all over Savannah.

The 5,025 square feet home retains much of its original architecture including a dramatic curved staircase, three marble mantels, wide plank hardwood floors, and hand carved Corinthian columns that flank the grand entrance foyer and divide the double parlors. If the four flights of stairs are too much, try the elevator which travels between all four floors.  If you need a breath of fresh air, walk out of the breakfast area and onto the rooftop garden.
