The heart of Savannah’s history
Savannah’s Landmark Historic District was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. It is one of the largest historic landmarks in the country. Its boundaries are East Broad Street, Gwinnett Street, MLK Boulevard and the Savannah River. Some of the significant buildings that were saved and restored include The Pirates’ House (1754), an inn mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s book “Treasure Island”; the Herb House (1734), oldest building in Georgia; and the The Olde Pink House (1789), site of Georgia’s first bank. The birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (completed in 1821), now owned and operated by the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. as a memorial to their founder.
The Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, built in 1812 as a mansion, was one of the South’s first public museums. Restored churches include: The Lutheran Church of the Ascension (1741); Independent Presbyterian Church (1890) and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (1876), one of the largest Roman Catholic churches in the South. The First African Baptist Church was established in 1788. Savannah’s Temple Mickeve Israel is the third oldest synagogue in America.
In the last 10 years more than 50 million people came to visit Savannah, drawn by its elegant architecture, ornate ironwork, fountains and green squares. Savannah’s beauty is rivaled only by the city’s reputation for hospitality and a vibrant economy that pulses strongly. The Port of Savannah is one of the busiest in the country. Institutions of higher education are plentiful and include the Savannah College of Art and Design; a home-spun powerhouse in the realm of the Arts. Gulfstream is an exclusive maker of fine, private luxury jets and its marque is recognized around the world. Several large, excellent hospitals are nationally ranked and continue to expand their services.
By design, Savannah and its Landmark Historic District are microcosms that pulse with activity of all sorts from bars, to restaurants, to guest houses, retail and more. Life in the Landmark Historic District is a joyous reflection on the push and pull of city life as well as a study of the most famous urban forest and cityscape in the country. Lush green and booming business co-habitate side-by-side creating a synergy unrivaled by any other city.
One of the best features of Gordonston- in the past and today- is its proximity to other areas of Savannah. Downtown is simply minutes away, the Southside is easily reached by the Truman Parkway which girdles the neighborhood and President Street Extension offers a straight shot to the Islands and the Beach. The booming Skidaway/Victory corridor is also located nearby and hosts one of the widest variety of retail and dining options in the city boasting everything from Target to Home Depot from Victory Cinemas to Starbucks and a true plethora of fast-food and casual dining options. The booming Whole Foods Market, PetSmart and Chipotle Grill complex in just minutes away as well.
Today, about two hundred families live in this beautifully kept neighborhood. There is the tangible closeness and camaraderie of a true neighborhood-in the old-fashioned sense of the word-that binds generations of families to this jewel of a neighborhood and there is remarkably low turn-over in home sales. Gordonston keeps the secret of her tranquil community, genteel lifestyle, lovely forested park and outstanding homes close to the chest and guarded. Wandering into this outpost in the Eastside of Savannah reveals yet another treasured neighborhood in Greater Savannah’s own back yard.
