In 1969, Jim Williams, one of Savannah's earliest and most dedicated private restorationists, bought the then-vacant house and began a two-year restoration. This house is one of the more than 50 houses Mr. Williams saved during his 30-year career in historic restoration in Savannah and the Lowcountry. Throughout the house, you will see furniture and art from Mr. Williams's private collection, including 18th and 19th century furniture, 18th century English and American portraits, drawings from the 17th century and a wide collection of Chinese export porcelain. This is also the home that Mr. Williams lived in during the time chronicled in the book and film, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."
