Our History

Originally built as a private home in the 1890’s, the mansion was acquired early on by a celebrated sea captain from Nova Scotia, Captain Aaron Flint “Rudder” Churchill. Gaining fame from an extraordinary voyage that took place in 1866, he was first mate of his uncle’s ship Research, sailing from Quebec to Scotland. A few days out from their destination, a violent storm struck the vessel, shredding the sails and unshipping the rudder. Young Churchill battled and secured the rudder, a feat he would repeat again and again during the coming weeks.

Eight years after the Research limped into Scotland’s Greenock harbor, Captain Churchill found the love of his life, Lois Churchill. Marrying in 1874, they moved to Savannah. In the next few years he founded the Churchill Steamship Line and acquired a winter home which we now know as The Forsyth Park Inn. If you look closely throughout our property, you’ll notice the captains influence. Rope motifs around the main entrance door and the twisted rope balusters of our grand staircase.

On June 10, 1920, Captain Churchill died in his Savannah home, survived by his nieces Mary and Lottie. His wife Lois followed him in 1929. Their home was subsequently sold and has lived quite a life over the last 90 years. Originally, it operated as a boarding house, then was converted into a multi-unit apartment house. In the 80’s, the house was purchased by a group of investors who renovated the house into The Forsyth Park Inn.  In 2016, the Harrison Family purchased the building and have been taking care of her ever since.
