"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."
There are approximately eight prominent styles of architeture throughout our beautiful city including Greek and Revival, Georgian and Federal, to name a few . As we take your students through the many beautiful squares, they will see and learn about these styles, including the their history in Savannah. Read more.
Savannah's colorful history spans several major wars and almost three centuries. Known throughout the United States as a central location for cotton and slavery prior to, and during the Civil War, few know that Savananh's history is far older and intertwined with the founding of our country. The site of the second bloodiest battle during the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Savannah was fought right under three major downtown museums.
Just outside of Savannah proper in neighboring Pooler, GA, lies the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Airforce, a goldmine of nastalgia donated by the Greatest Generation and the perfect place to learn about our country's role in World War II.
Let us show you a fort built to help protect our coast during the War of 1812, or take you to see the Union cannon holes on the side of Fort Pulaski National Monument.
Located on the East Coast, Tybee Island, Georgia is the perfect place to learn about marine biology from the south Atlantic Ocean, as well as the importance of the Georgia marshlands and sea islands.
Did you know that 80% of all of the salt marshes on the entire East Coast of the United States are in Georgia? Or that the horseshoe crab has lived on our beaches over 350 million years? Do your students know how to tell if they've come across a live or dead sand dollar?
