About

Our Savannah History Walk is an excellent way to orient yourself with Savannah’s past. We start in Savannah’s oldest square and outline the founding of both Savannah and Georgia. From there we head south, square by square, discussing Savannah’s booms and busts.
Some topics covered include the Oglethorpe Plan for squares, the father vs. son atmosphere of Revolutionary Savannah, the city’s most famous duel, Presidential visits, the Civil War era and Federal occupation, the experience of Antebellum and post-War African Americans, and the city’s churches and historic homes. We’ll take our talk right up to the tourist boom brought on by a certain book, the growing Port of Savannah, and where the city goes from here. You’ll also hear about dozens of men and women who made this place what it is.
This is Savannah's most in-depth and comprehensive historic tour. Whether a tourist or longtime resident, you’ll walk away with a greater appreciation of all things Savannah.

Itinerary

We will proceed down Savannah's main street through some of the most beautiful squares in town. We'll visit five in total. We'll spend about 20 minutes in each square, discussing both the history of the city and that particular square. As a former National Park Service Ranger, you'll be enjoying the most historically accurate tour in town.
