Overview

Tom Draffin and his wife are regular visitors to Savannah, and they've enjoyed its shops, squares, and Southern charm.

But they became increasingly interested in its old homes, many dating back to the 1700s. Strangely, however, there was no book or reference guide that told them where to find these historic homes and why they are so special.

As a way to chronicle his findings-and to help others fascinated by Savannah's architecture and history-he compiled this guide featuring some of the city's oldest historic district homes. The guide tells you when each home was built, where to find it, the history of the ward where it's located, and more.

Photos show the homes in the context of their surroundings. In some cases, you'll see two adjacent homes that look identical even though they were built a hundred years apart.

Whether you're a visitor or Savannah resident exploring your city's rich history and architecture, you'll find this guide an essential resource to learning about its historic homes.
