Savannah: An Architectural Feast
One of the things I most admire about Savannah is its architecture. Successfully (for the most part!) blending a myriad of styles, it really is a feast for the eyes. These two overhead shots were taken by going to the top of a few parking garages in town.
This one feels like Key West.
I love the rowhouses; how cool it would be to live in one of these grand old homes.
SCAD gets much credit for saving/rehabbing many of the old buildings in Savannah that most likely would have been victims of the wrecking ball.
The Davenport House: the one that is credited with beginning the movement for historic preservation in Savannah. Thanks, Isaiah!
Even the cemeteries have cool "buildings" and architectural details:
Going inside the buildings can be just as fascinating. Here's the Chamber/Visit Savannah Building:
Inside is this impressive bank vault, which shows the creativity of re-purposing beautiful old buildings.
Thanks for humoring my fascination with this beautiful city.
