Savannah’s Victorian Historic District is one of a number of Historic Districts in and around Downtown Savannah. The true Victorian District runs from the south side of Gwinnett Street to Anderson Street, bordered by MLK and Broad Street to the west and east, respectively. South of the Victorian District is the Thomas Square Historic District; a much larger district which includes Victorian-era homes and is thus sometimes also erroneously included when people speak generically about the “Victorian District.”
Following the Civil War, crowded living conditions downtown and technological advances, such as paved streets, a streetcar system, and electricity, promoted the development of suburban residences. When a streetcar system was installed in 1869 real estate developers followed its tracks, building inexpensive frame houses in the southern edges of the city. Highly detailed Victorian and Queen Anne Victorian homes, constructed between 1870 and 1910, were built in a 50-block division, 165-acre neighborhood south of the Savannah Landmark Historic District.
Forsyth Park, Savannah’s version of Central Park, is partly situated in the Victorian District and is a major draw for the district’s residents. Just about any home in the Victorian District is within walking distance of River Street, the furthest point downtown, so its location is ideal. In fact, the Victorian District is one of Savannah’s best walking neighborhoods and is ranked “Very Walkable” by WalkScore.com.
