Pooler Real Estate
Pooler Homes For Sale They say ‘It’s cooler in Pooler’ and it seems that many folks would agree. In ten short years the city’s population and development has exploded, making it one of the fastest growing and commercially diverse cities in the state. During the Civil War, Pooler was a railway stop called Pooler’s Station—the last stop before Savannah on the Central of Georgia Railroad. In December 1864, as William Tecumseh Sherman moved in on Savannah, he found that even though that city lay but a scant 10 miles away, he felt he had “miles and miles to go before he sleeps, for he had promises to keep”. General Sherman had, after all, promised to give Savannah to President Lincoln for a Christmas present, and Christmas was fast approaching. Pooler was the meeting place where Sherman negotiated with Savannah authorities for the strategic port city’s peaceful surrender. Today, Pooler is the booming center of commercial development in west Chatham County. Godley Station, at heart of this business development, has been successful in attracting large companies such as JCB to the area. Gulfstream, maker of luxury personal jets, and the Savannah International Airport are two of the largest employers in the area. Newer shopping centers such as The Shops at Godley Station are bringing booming revenue to the area. Low crime, and a small town community feel have all been factors in its explosive growth.
