Summer Photos of Savannah Georgia
Historic Savannah GA
This summer I got the chance to go to Savannah GA. I had never even thought about going to Savannah, but now I want to go back.
There is so much history there, from the buildings and architecture, to the haunted houses and cemeteries.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn which was right in the center of the historic district, and almost everything was within walking distance.
These are just some of the photos we took during our stay there.
432 Abercorn St. Savannah GA - Haunted House?
This house in Savannah is supposedly the most haunted house there. The house is currently unoccupied and the owners have no plans to sell it or give tours. It is said that sometimes you can see a little girl sitting at the window on the second floor.
Savannah GA is known as the most haunted city in America. There are ghost tours available day and night.
World War II Memorial Savannah GA
This is the world war II memorial located on River St. There is lots to see and do down on River St.
River St. Back Alley.
This is the back alley running behind all the shops on River St.
Its all cobblestone and people actually drive back there. The steps leading down there are very steep, and located at just about every block.
The Warehouse Bar and Grill Savannah GA - Boasting the coldest and cheapest beer in town
The Warehouse bar and grill was always hoppin, and the beer was cold.
The Pirates House Restaurant
The Pirates House was a fun place to eat, with waitresses dressed up like pirates telling you the history of the place. This is where men would get drunk and be shanghaied onto merchant vessels heading for China and other places.
Colonial Park Cemetery Entrance
Colonial Park Cemetery was right down the street from our hotel. It is full of interesting graves and gravestones. One section has people buried who died from the yellow fever epidemic. Back during the civil war, soldiers camped here, and some of them defaced some of the gravestones, changing dates and such. On the back wall of the cemetery are some of the oldest grave markers. Some you can't read anymore, but they preserved them somewhat by attaching them to the wall so they can't be destroyed or damaged accidentally. Very interesting history here.
Colonial Park Cemetery Back Wall
This is part of the back wall I mentioned in the other section.
The Famous Bird Girl Statue - Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah Georgia
This is the famous Bird Girl Statue that was shown on the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. This is a postcard I purchased of how the statue looked before it was moved out of the cemetery because of all the hoopla over the book and subsequent movie.
The Bird Girl Statue now resides in a museum in Savannahs Historic District. I didn't get to see her this time because I really didn't know about it.
Next trip I will go to see her. :)
Photo Video of Our Trip to Savannah GA
I couldn't possibly add all the photos I took to this lens so here is a video showing more of the photos.
Sears and Roebuck House - Savannah GA - Are the window mouldings upside down?
We took one of the trolley tours and the driver told us that this was a house bought out of the Sears and Roebuck Catalog back in the 20's I think. He claims that the window moldings are upside down. I'm not too sure about that, it could go either way. What do you think?
What do you think?
Are the moldings on the Sears and Roebuck House upside down?
Cannon Firing Demonstration - Fort Pulaski Georgia
No trip to Savannah would be complete without a trip to Fort Pulaski.
They do cannon firing demonstrations at certain times throughout the day.
This is one of 2 demonstrations we witnessed that day.

I always watch the new videos from the Savannah Channel, they are always entertaining.
