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.

Nice apt but noise issues
The apt was lovely but there was construction next door that started at 7 am with drilling, sawing, etc. we were not able to relax due to constant noise during the day. We notified the owner with clips of the noise level. She shared that she didn’t think it was going to start that early. My concern was that it would have been nice to know in advance rather than having this occur My only advice is to ask prior to stay if construction will be going on. I know In urban areas it’s a constant thing but a heads up would have been appreciated.
Perfect Spot for Your Stay in Savannah
This location is the perfect spot for enjoying all that Savannah has to offer. Easy access to restaurants, shops and historic areas of town. In addition, the condo itself is beautiful with comfortable furniture and decor, and is also well equipped for your needs. Topping it all off is the view. Being able to step out on the small balcony and watch the activity on River Street and on the river was amazing. Very impressive. Just don't leave the doors open unattended or you might have a visit from a bird or two! Shooing them out of the house was a riot, but we did it. Only minor suggestion I have is that the bathroom could use the addition of a small table to set toiletries on while still keeping them handy. We will definitely recommend this spot to friends!
Fantastic location, funky and very clean apt. Only issue was a surprising lack of drinking glasses which was communicated to the owner who said they'd take care of it. Overall, great stay and keyless entry very convenient.
Great location, very nice apartment.
Had a great stay and the apartment is just as advertised. Well kept and clean. Nice views from the balcony and very easy access to the historic district and bars and restaurants. Would stay again without question.
