February 27, 2010 – Savannah, Georgia

We took a fascinating tour of Savannah, Georgia today.  The city’s rich history dates back to 1733.  Nearly three centuries later it retains 22 of its original park-like squares, many cobblestone and crushed-oyster paved streets, and the beautiful architecture of her 18th and 19th century homes and churches. 

We had the opportunity to tour two of these antebellum homes with their beautiful architecture and unique and ingenious interior designs, including one with the first interior plumbing in the United States.  

Throughout the city’s historic district, there are the most incredible wrought iron railings, fences and gates.

And, like all cities, there are always those homes which don’t seem to fit … like this one just outside and across the street from the historic district.

Our only regret is that there was so much to see and there was too little time to take in everything.
