Rich History, Bright Future

The House on Taylor was originally constructed circa 1850 for Mary Demere. It’s had a rich history of Savannahians utilizing the residence as a private home and commercial offices. The home was previously restored in the 1980s by renowned antique dealer Francis “Skeeter” McNairy, who used the carriage house as his storefront. During Skeeter’s restoration, the home was featured in several books detailing Savannah architecture and interiors, including Classic Savannah: History, Homes, and Gardens (1988).
