Overview

The definitive guide to the architectural treasures of one of North America s urban masterpieces "Savannah s twenty-two squares are its treasures the other main attraction: its architectural gems. The sheer number of distinguished buildings is astonishing for a city of Savannah s size." John Berendt, from the Foreword

The National Trust Guide to Savannah takes you on an illustrated walking tour through the breathtakingly gorgeous squares and neighborhoods of one of North America s most beautiful cities. Pausing along the way to linger over this or that point of architectural interest, Roulhac Toledano pieces together the history of the city, from when it was little more than a plan on founder James Edward Oglethorpe s drawing board through the groundbreaking preservation work of the 1950s. With the help of more than 200 historic and contemporary photographs, Toledano provides vivid impressions of the city, and takes you to the outlying areas of the Sea Islands and salt marshes, the plantations of Chatham County, and nearby river villages. For those planning a visit, The National Trust Guide to Savannah supplies an extensive guide to Savannah s museums, lodgings, restaurants, bookstores, antique shops, and other points of interest.
