AAA Editor Notes
Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters, 124 Abercorn St. on Oglethorpe Sq., was designed by English architect William Jay. Influenced by classical antiquity, he built the elegant residence over a 4-year period beginning in 1816 using both domestic and imported materials, and designed an innovative plumbing system. In 1825 the Marquis de Lafayette was a guest here.

The English Regency house is furnished with rare antiques and contains decorative arts owned by 19th-century city residents. The carriage house, also the departure point for tours, contains an orientation gallery and the original slave quarters. An English-inspired parterre garden connects the main buildings.

The tour includes information on the lives and relationships between the Owens family and the enslaved people who worked on the property.
