Preservation Lovin'

the inner workings of a historic preservationist as she courageously tries to save buildings, neighborhoods, and communities by showing the inner beauty and wisdom that lies within our physical environment

From National Park Service Website:

"The Savannah Victorian Historic District, Savannah’s first suburb, is  located just south of the Savannah Historic District.  Originally a  parade ground, the extension of street railways in the late 19th century  spurred the development of this neighborhood.  The wood frame houses  dating from the 1870s and 1880s are a mixture of several Victorian  styles of architecture.  Some of the best examples of these are the  Carpenter Box style houses on West Gwinnett Street embellished with  ornate brackets and cornices, the Queen Anne style mansion at the corner  of Whitaker and Gwinnett, and the imposing Victorian Telfair Hospital  on Park Avenue."
