The Jepson Center for the Arts is located on Telfair Square, and is just a short seven-minute walk from the Hilton Garden Inn.

Considered one of the best examples of English Regency architecture in the country, the Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters was built in 1819 and gives you the chance to learn about the people – both free and enslaved – who lived on the site. You’ll find decorative arts, interactive exhibits, and more. The Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters is just three squares away from the Jepson Center for the Arts and the Telfair Academy.
Established in 1966 and located in the historic Scarborough House, Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum features 18th and 19th century ship models, paintings, and antiques that are primarily from the era of Atlantic trade and travel between America and England.
