Savannah Architecture Guide

Savannah Architecture Guide

Some 40 percent of Savannah’s buildings are of architectural or historical significance, and walking the streets of this Southern city is a study in architectural styles of the 18th and 19th centuries. There’s plenty to learn about Savannah as you tour these gems—here’s where to start.

Isaiah Davenport House

One of the best examples of Federal-style architecture in the city, the brick and brownstone Isaiah Davenport House—today a museum—has been restored to what it looked like in the 1820s, complete with original plaster and woodwork, a hanging staircase, and period furniture. Stop off at this historical gem during a hop-on hop-off trolley tour.

Mercer Williams House

One of Savannah’s most popular tourist attractions and a setting in the best-selling novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, the Italianate Mercer Williams House was the site of a notorious 1969 murder allegedly committed by historical preservationist and antiques dealer Jim Williams. Williams’ private art and furniture collection still adorns the space.

Forsyth Park

Designed by landscape gardener William Bischoff, Savannah’s leafy Forsyth Park is a shining example of landscape architecture. Trees draped with Spanish moss shade gardens, memorials, and Savannah’s most famous fountain in this 30-acre (12-hectare) green space. Just about every sightseeing tour makes a stop here. 

Telfair Academy

The Telfair Academy is part of the Telfair Museums of Art, the oldest art museum in the South. This classical Regency mansion houses marble rooms hung with paintings from both American and European masters and decorated with Telfair family furniture.

Olde Pink House

The pink stucco-covered brick gives Savannah’s Olde Pink House its name. This Georgian mansion, built in 1771, is a favorite spot for ghost hunting. Stop in for dinner or do a bit of your own investigating on a haunted tour of the Savannah Historic District.

Temple Mickve Israel

Monterey Square is home to the third-oldest Jewish congregation in the country. The only pure Gothic-revival synagogue in the United States, it also houses significant historical documents, including a letter from George Washington.
