The Carriage House was formerly built for the home now divided into 542 and 540 E. Taylor St.by the current owners when they restored it in 2001. The Carriage House (a part of 540 E. Taylor) was nicknamed Taylor Cottage at that time. It is located within the coveted downtown 'landmark' historic district which is the original Georgia colony borders from when the colony was established in 1783.
The famous savannah squares surround the entire landmark downtown district and shops, eateries, boutiques, fine dining, museums and tours are on pretty much all of them.
