Savannah Architecture

 

In a study published by the Savannah Historic Foundation, one of the most admired preservation groups in the country, more than 40 percent of 2,500 buildings inventoried in Savannah had architectural or historical significance. Most restoration has been accomplished by individuals – one building at a time. With the addition of the Savannah College of Art and Design in the late 1970s, historic preservation and restoration flourished. From the simple Colonial style to the intricate Medieval-influenced cathedrals, to the gingerbread accents of the Victorian period; examples of most, if not all, of the nation’s 18th and 19th century prevailing architectural styles can be found in Savannah.

Nice pic's Elizabeth, there were so many of these wonderful places, all interspersed with the lovely squares full of trees, what a place it is.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! I'm afraid I took waaaay to many photos of the houses... and I'm not usually interested in architecture!
J'aime beaucoup le style de ces maisons.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do, too, Martine!

It really is quite beautiful. I especially like the staircase in the two other images. SCAD has a campus in Provence of all places.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Alan!rnI remember your photos of the Provence Campus!
Sheer delight E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill!
They are fantastic. Solemn architecture.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are, indeed, wonderful to look at!
I'm guessing that Savannah must be an important part of American history if so much work and care goes into making sure these beautiful buildings are in such good condition.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're absolutely right. In both the Revolutionary & Civil Wars, Savannah was a prized position and reward.
I think you would love that book I recommended.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, Mary - I sure did! I have read it, listened to it on audio book & watched the movie!
So glad these historic homes are being restored, Elizabeth. Too bad there is a need for bars on the basement windows though.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I agree with you on both counts... whole heartedly!

It is so good to know that these grandiose buildings are being preserved.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I agree, Anne - It's important to preserve some history...
Handsome houses.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I surely think so!
