William Scarbrough House
The house itself dates back to 1819 and was designed by British architect William Jay—it’s one of the first examples of the Greek Revival style in the South. William Scarbrough was a shipping merchant and part owner of the steamship the Savannah, the first of its kind to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The fabulous house is now home to the Ships of the Sea Museum, with nine galleries devoted to models and artworks portraying the rich maritime history of the city. All of the ships are built to the same scale, and the collection also includes a detailed model of the most famous ship of all: the Titanic.
