Oliver Sturgis was an influential planner and promoter in the Atlantic crossing of the Steamship SS Savannah. The ship was the first steam-powered vessel to cross the Atlantic.

Oliver Sturgis Georgian style townhouse was built in 1813. The townhouse features an elliptical fanlight over the entrance and an arched window over the portico. It also has a semi-raised basement enclosed by an iron railing. Around the earlier 1800's, an octagon shaped room was added which overlooks the garden. A third story was added round 1835.

The Oliver Sturgis townhouse is located on the lot adjacent to the Planters Inn at 27 Abercorn Street.
