The Mercer-Williams House, Monterey Square, Savannah, Georgia, was designed by John S. Norris for Gen. Hugh Weedon Mercer (great-grandfather of songwriter Johnny Mercer). Construction of the house began in 1860, but was interrupted by the Civil War, & finally completed around 1868 by the new owner, John Wilder. After several tenants, it lay vacant for a decade until in 1969 when Jim Williams, one of Savannah’s earliest & most dedicated private restorationists, bought the house & restored it.
