Landmark Historic District
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.
