Thomas Square has become the hottest, hippest neighborhood in Savannah with the likes of Foxy Loxy Café, The Vault, Cotton and Rye, Atlantic and so many others. Revitalization and a well organized, long established neighborhood association have added great structure to the existing neighborhood fabric. This Midtown location has easy access to Victory Drive, the Drayton/Whitaker Corridor, 37th Street Connector and the Truman Parkway to ensure quick travel to all parts of town. Can’t really go wrong with this one as this area is about to really “blow up” in the best of ways.
While it now sits in the heart of midtown, Thomas Square was Savannah’s first suburb, where a post-Civil War middle class sought modern convenience, spacious homes and a reasonable streetcar commute into the city.
Suburb suggests a certain sameness, a certain predictable design and uniformity. However, the streets in the Thomas Square neighborhood show an area with a patchwork quilt of uses and restorations. Some areas have tree-lined streets, bricked sections of road, historically land-scaped medians, “door yard” gardens and stately Victorian homes painstakingly restored by investors or long-time residents.
Designated a National Register Historic District in 1997, the Thomas Square Streetcar Historic District contains a collection of historic, intact residential, commercial, and community buildings associated with the Thomas Square Neighborhood. Developed in the late nineteenth century, Thomas Square is bounded by Anderson Lane on the north, East Broad Street, roughly Victory Drive on the south, and Montgomery Street on the west. The city electrified the streetcar in 1888 and extended the A and B Belt line south along Whitaker Street into this district, creating a streetcar suburb. The streetcar lines were removed in 1920 due to the increased use of the automobile.
In this district one finds significant examples of Queen Anne, Folk Victorian, Italianate, Neoclassical Revival, Colonial Revival, Greek Revival, and Craftsman style residential architecture. This area is also rich in community landmarks, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor complex and Herme’s Bakery, the only store remaining from a shopping center at the corner of 32nd and Bull streets. Despite its historic and architectural merit, Thomas Square-Trolley Historic District is threatened by neglect and incompatible uses for its historic structures. (from HSF)
