ENTRUSTED WITH HISTORY’S FUTURE
The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Georgia (NSCDA-GA) promotes shared national heritage through historic preservation, patriotic service, and educational projects. Our members exemplify leadership, purpose, and determination with the common goal to preserve the past, serve the present, and educate for the future.
One of the important ways the NSCDA-GA serves its mission of historic preservation and education is through the stewardship and operation of the Andrew Low House Museum. The museum is a nationally known 1840s historic home and garden and a vital part of Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District. The decorative arts collection and furnishings housed in the museum represent an important part of Georgia’s history.
The Andrew Low House served as the Georgia Society’s headquarters from 1928 until 2018. At that time the NSCDA-GA purchased an 1888 Italianate historic building one block away at 319 Abercorn Street. This lovely building, known as Abercorn House, now serves as the headquarters for the Society and is used for meetings, office spaces, programs, and rentals.
