About this Savannah, Georgia tour
In 1847, Andrew Low II was a wealthy man. The Scottish immigrant came to the U.S. to inherit his uncle's cotton business at age 17, and since then had established himself as one of the most successful cotton traders in Savannah. That summer, Low commissioned one of the city's top architects to build a house for his family: his wife Sarah and their three children. Things seemed perfect for the young Low family, but starting the next year in 1848, the hand of death would deal it a series of devastating blows.
In August of 1848, Low's three-year-old son Andrew died suddenly. In February of 1849, Low received news that his father William had passed away in Scotland. Just three months later in May, his wife Sarah died under mysterious circumstances – and to cap off a terrible year, the uncle from whom Low had inherited his cotton business, Andrew Low I, died in England in August of 1849.
Today, the specter of the dead still looms over the Low household. It became a museum in 1950, but staff members report seeing shadowy figures moving in and out of the house's five bedrooms and parlor area. Members of the cleaning staff have detected a strange perfume scent on the grand staircase; some even report of furniture shifting overnight.
Low remarried in 1854, but he outlived his second wife as well: She passed away in 1865. The home of a man struck by death relentlessly during his life might now be a hotbed for the undead.
