SAVANNAH, Georgia -- One of our our Jones Street neighbors is the historic home of Israel Keech Tefft, located at 1 West Jones Street. The family home was built in 1849, only seven years before our Zeigler House Inn was built in 1856 for Solomon Zeigler's family.

Mr. Tefft (February 12, 1794- June 30,1862), was Cashier of the Bank of the State of Georgia in Savannah. Our own Mr. Zeigler was an international lumber merchant. Both were industrious businessmen. They were among the most "respected and admired" men in the community.

Tefft's Independence Day, July 4, 1827, toast delivered in the Savannah Exchange building was to "Agriculture, Commerce, and Manufactures -- three sister arts, mutual support and fellowship are necessary for the prosperity of each."
