From 91 Days in Savannah
Savannah, Georgia, one of the USA’s southern jewels, was our home for three winter months at the end of 2010. From beautiful squares to historic houses, unforgettable restaurants and an eccentric cast of characters that could be (and actually is) straight out of a novel, we tried to capture everything that makes Savannah so special. Start reading from the beginning of our journey, or skip to the end. Visit the comprehensive index of everything we wrote about, or just check out a few posts, selected at random, below:

The Telfair Academy
We stopped by the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences recently, found on the eastern side of Telfair Square. The Regency style mansion was built by William Jay for the family, but has been used as a museum since 1886, making it the oldest public art museum in the South.

The Owens Thomas House – Our First Bad Experience in Savannah
Let’s start with the good — the William Jay house truly is an architectural masterpiece, with design elements I’ve never seen before, such as a bridge connecting the two halves of the upper floor. It was one of the first houses in America with running water, and every room is elegantly designed. Plus, the house has been kept in excellent shape. The price is initially shocking, at $20 per head, but when you consider that it includes entrance to the three sites of the Telfair Museum for a week, it’s fine.

Ebenezer – Home of the Salzburg Lutherans
A striking whethered gray memorial stone in Emmet Park pays tribute to a group of Lutherans from Salzburg who came to Georgia to escape religious persecution. Oglethorpe welcomed them with open arms, and suggested they settle a town along a river, about 25 miles north of the new colony’s capital. And Ebenzer was born.
