A Historic Home

- Savannah Georgia -

The building that is now Amethyst Garden was part of Wesley Ward, and its original address was 48 E. Gaston. The stately single-family home was originally built in 1888 for Tomlinson F. Johnson.

 

Tomlinson and Emma Johnson built their family home for $10,000 in 1888. They would have spent a little over $270,000 in modern times considering inflation. For what we would consider a modest price, they were able to build a grand three level home with an attic on a one and a half sized lot. As well as outfit their home with twelve fireplaces, large sliding doors, heart pine floors, and an intricately carved wooden staircase in its foyer. The couple owned the house for 14 years before selling it in 1901.
