Visit a National Historic Landmark in Savannah

Visit a National Historic Landmark in Savannah

Operated by the National Park Service, the National Historic Landmark program recognizes places of historical significance within the United States. Consisting of a building, site or area, this distinctive honor has only been given to around 2,500 places to date. With a region steeped in history, Savannah is fortunate to have numerous landmarks around the city. Here are a few to visit:

Owens-Thomas House

Part of the Telfair Museums, the Owens-Thomas House is an important piece of United States history. Operated as a house museum today, this home was completed in 1819 and was created in the English Regency style. Guided tours are offered daily and highlight the complicated history of the home as well as an overview of the home's architectural significance. 

Old Fort Jackson

Constructed under the direction of President Thomas Jefferson, Old Fort Jackson is the oldest brick fort still standing in Georgia. Located on the banks of the Savannah River, this fort was built between 1808 and 1812. Prominently placed to protect the city during the war, visitors can experience reenactments such as cannon firings as well as view displays of tools and weapons that were used during that time. 

Davenport House Museum

Located on Columbia Square, the Davenport House Museum sits in the heart of the Historic District. Built in 1820, this home is considered one of the oldest brick buildings in the city. Encompassing over 6,800 square feet, the Davenport House Museum provides guided tours every day and gives an overview of the day-to-day life of the Davenport family in that era. 

Ideally located, Olympus Fenwick offers easy access to all of the historical sites of Savannah including National Landmarks such as these. Please contact us for more information.
