Around the World: Savannah & around


The Savannah Historic District is a large urban U.S. historic district that roughly corresponds to the city limits of Savannah, Georgia, prior to the American Civil War.
The area was declared a National Historic Landmark District in 1966, and is one of the largest districts of its kind in the United States (designated by the U.S. government in 1966).
Each year, the Savannah Historic District attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century architecture and green spaces. The district includes the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South's first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third-oldest synagogue in America), the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in America), the old Colonial Cemetery, Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and Old Harbor Light.




Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, also known as Telfair Academy and Telfair Mansion, is a historic mansion in Savannah, Georgia. Originally a family townhouse, it became a free art museum in 1886 known as the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences. Its first director, elected in 1883, was artist Carl Ludwig Brandt, who spent winters in Savannah.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976. The mansion is now the main facility of the Telfair Museum of Art, and features furnished period rooms that highlight the museum's collection of decorative arts.


William Scarbrough House is a historic house in Savannah, Georgia. It is significant for its Neoclassical architecture. It was completed in 1819. An architecturally compatible third floor was added in the mid-19th century, but was later removed. The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1973.
