Historic Sites of Savannah

4.5 17 Reviews | Add your review

Savannah is proud to call itself the oldest city in Georgia, and partly because of this (and partly because of the swift action by the Savannah Historic Preservation) Savannah is awash in history and points of interest.  A walk through the Savannah Historic District is your best bet to experience the true beauty of Savannah’s live oaks, brilliant magnolias, and rich cultural sites. You’ll see centuries-old houses like the Owen-Thomas House, the Juliette Gordon-Low Birthplace House (Juliette Gordon-Low was the founder of the Girl Scouts), and historic museums and trusts like the Telfair Museum of Art and the historic City Market. Oglethorpe Square is one of the most beautiful town squares anywhere, named after Georgia’s founder, James Oglethorpe, and here or at any one of the numerous other park-like squares you can take a seat on a park bench and listen to street musicians play saxophone. A visit to the Savannah History Museum will give you all the information you need to know, and as luck would have it – it’s right next door to the Visitor’s Center.
