Eliza Thompson House was home to Eliza and Joseph Thompson and their seven children. It was built in 1847 and was the first house constructed on Jones Street. The Eliza Thompson House was one of the finest homes in Savannah and was the place for grand parities and celebrations.

In 1977 the Eliza Thompson House was purchased and in 1978 the house was made into an inn.

The Eliza Thompson House had extensive renovation. The original front door was moved to its present location and the entryway into the hallway from the current foyer is one of the original window openings from the 1847 structure. Other renovations include the bathrooms, closets and changes to the front porch.

In 1995 more extensive renovation was done. All rooms were painted the historically correct colors and the floors were refinished. Antiques brought back from England were use to furnish the rooms. The house is currently a Bed and Breakfast.
