Historic information from the owner:
This five story building was constructed in 1859 by John Stoddard, two years before the outbreak of the American Civil War. Collectively, the block of buildings is known as Stoddard's Lower Range. Construction is joisted masonry with heart pine beams and floors and Okefenokee cypress window frames. The walls of the first three levels consist not only of Savannah Gray brick but also of ship ballaststone and coral. Ships arriving in the port would offload ballast replacing it with cotton and naval stores for the homeward bound leg of their voyage. The discarded ballast material was abundant and less expensive than brick. Iron bridges provided not only access to the building's upper stories but also were used by the Factors to inspect and bid on the cotton crop. The street name, Factor's Walk derives from this practice.
The building was purchased by my family from John Stoddard's great grandson in 1945. At one time, 226 E Bay was the residence of the captain of the port of Savannah, Frank Spenser and his wife Anna. I recall the captain's homage to his seafaring days, a port hole in the front door. Mrs. Spenser continued to reside in the apartment after Captain Spenser's death until the early 1960's. The painting on the mantel, 'Anna's Walk' was named in her honor by the artist, Ray Ellis. After Mrs. Spenser, the Savannah artist Augusta Olesheig occupied the apartment as her residence and studio.
Enjoy your stay.
Location, location, location. Especially the veranda which provided some excellent photography opportunities. Everything about the rental space was top shelf and Cortney was especially easy to communicate with. So many options for food and beverage, all within walking distance and with great menu options. My wife and I were thoroughly impressed and hope to return.
This was our 4th visit to this condo and it 's still our favorite spot. Courtney is always responsive and helps out with any questions or issues that come up.
Loved this place and hope to come back. Just the right location for a fun weekend in Savannah. Eclectic and wonderful combination of the stork and modern.
Wonderful trip. Appt is even better than it looks in the pics. Very spacious and right in the heart of everything!!! Will definitely return!!
This was our first time in Savannah and we were very pleased to be right by the river. A quick walk to just about everything was especially nice for dinners. The parking pass was great and the garage is right across the street. Found some great restaurants: The Grey, Co, a.Lure and Collins Quarter for brunch. Would definitely visit again and stay here. Also, we highly recommend a Segway tour.
