A Taste of Savannah, Georgia

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT SAVANNAH?

  1. Savannah is the largest city in, and the county seat of, Chatham County, Georgia, USA. According to the U.S. Census Bureau the population was 134,669.

  2. Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city's architecture and historic buildings: The First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African American Baptist congregations in the United States)

  3. The city's location offers visitors access to the coastal islands and the Savannah Riverfront, both popular tourist destinations. Tybee Island, formerly known as "Savannah Beach", is the site of the Tybee Island Light Station, the first lighthouse on the southern Atlantic coast.

  4. Other picturesque towns adjacent to Savannah include the shrimping village of Thunderbolt and three residential areas that began as summer resort communities for Savannahians: Beaulieu, Vernonburg and the Isle of Hope.

  5. The First Bryan Baptist Church is an African-American church that was organized by Andrew Bryan in 1788. The site was purchased in 1793 by Bryan, a former slave who had also purchased his freedom. The first structure was erected there in 1794. By 1800 the congregation was large enough to split: those at Bryan Street took the name of First African Baptist Church, and Second and Third African Baptist churches were also established. The current sanctuary of First Bryan Baptist Church was constructed in 1873.

  6. Savannah's climate is characterized by hot, humid summers and cool winters. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic coast, Savannah rarely experiences temperatures as extreme as those in Georgia's interior. Nevertheless, temperatures as high as 105 F and as low as 3 F have been recorded. Savannah is at risk for hurricanes, particularly of the Cape Verde type.
