Landmark Historic

Welcome to Savannah's Landmark Historic District!

The Hub of Downtown Savannah

Savannah was designated a National Historic District in 1966 due to its unique city plan and historic building stock. The city plan extends from the Savannah River to Gwinnett Street and East Broad to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. The plan began with six wards and at the center of each ward, there was a public square. When individuals recognized how brilliant the plan was, city fathers implemented it in the southward expansion in the 1800s. The plan resulted in a total of 24 squares from the Savannah River to Gaston Street.
