The Telfair Academy is a former mansion built from 1818-1819 for Alexander Telfair, son of Revolutionary War patriot and Georgia governor Edward Telfair. The house and its furnishings were given to the Georgia Historical Society to be opened as a museum in 1875. The Academy contains two 19th-century period rooms and houses 19th- and 20th- century American and European art from the museum's permanent collection including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, and decorative arts. Highlights include fine examples of American Impressionism and Ashcan School Realism, with major paintings by Childe Hassam, Frederick Frieseke, Gari Melchers, Robert Henri, George Bellows, and George Luks. The Telfair Academy offer various guided tours of its collections and special exhibitions. Interpreters and volunteer docents encourage careful viewing and exploration of the artwork on display. Located at 121 Barnard Street in Savannah. Follow the Telfair Museums on Facebook.
