America’s first planned city, today Savannah is famous for its beautiful mansions facing 24 park-like squares, lovely architecture and southern hospitality. A popular attraction is Forsythe Park (above), a gathering place for tourists and locals alike. For more information: www.savannah.com. Below are architectural details from two Savannah houses.
Savannah was established in 1733 by English Gen. Jame Edward Oglethorpe to serve as a buffer protecting the Carolinas from Spanish Florida and French Louisiana.
