There are both national and local events being held in Savannah nearly every weekend of the year. Last weekend was the excitement and fun of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade that wound through the squares and streets of historic downtown Savannah. This coming weekend you can get a chance to tour some of the historic homes and buildings that were along the parade route. Savannah has the largest urban landmark historic district in the United States. There are 2.5 square miles of parks, squares and homes. Savannah was found in 1733 by General James Edward Oglethorpe. He designed the city to be a grid of residences and broad boulevards with spacious squares. Because of his plans, Savannah now has 21 oak canopied squares surrounded by historic homes, with some homes dating back over 200 years.
The 78th Annual Savannah Tour of Homes is March 21st to March 24th. The event allows the public to visit some of Savannah’s finest private residences and admire rare furniture and decorations that have been in families for generations as well as tour beautiful home gardens. The tour is a self-guided tour of 6-9 different sites over a 3 hour period. There are also historical time period (Revolutionary War to Civil War) specific tours and tours of Bonaventure Cemetery. There are special seminars that are held over the 3 days of the event. The tickets go very fast, so order them today to be able to see living history in Savannah.
