Row housing is a type of housing where the homes are in a line, one after the other. This style originated in England and gaining in popularity in the United States over the past few years. Savannah is home to some beautiful row houses that you won’t want to miss!
Gordon Row (also known as Gordon Block) is the largest single row house in Savannah,. It comprises fifteen homes (or “units”) located between 101 and 129 West Gordon Street in the southeastern residential block of Chatham Square. Completed in 1854, the row occupies the entire block between Barnard Street on the west and Whitaker Street on the east. It sits directly opposite Chatham Square to Quantock Row on Taylor Street.
Built between 1853 and 1855, the properties’ prospective use as renter-occupied houses made them popular in the city’s blossoming market. After falling into disrepair, the Historic Savannah Foundation renovated Gordon Row in the mid-20th century.
Scudder’s Row comprises the five homes from 1 to 9 East Gordon Street, in the southeastern residential block of Monterey Square. Completed in 1853, the property is part of the Savannah Historic District and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Brothers John and Ephraim Scudder built the properties between 1852 and 1853. John Scudder also built several of the homes on Savannah’s Jones Street, which has been described as one of the most charming streets in America.
William Remshart Row House
Four properties between 102 and 111 West Jones Street make up the William Remshart Row House.
