Savannah, Georgia is one of the South’s and the country’s most storied cities. Its history began in 1733 before America even became a nation. The British held Savannah during much of the Revolution, but once it was free, it became a flourishing city. As its wealth increased, so did the output of its citizens. Grand houses and churches were built around the city and many of those remain standing today with careful restoration. There’s no doubt that coming to Savannah feels a bit like walking backwards in time.
