Savannah in August After Dark
We have come to know the beauty and history of Savannah in the daytime, but after sunset, the city takes on a different personality.
Broughton, the “Main Drag” has recently recaptured its glory from the 1950’s, mostly because of the Savannah College of Art and Design, or SCAD. People line up at Leopold’s to get the best ice cream in town on a balmy summer’s evening.
Just across the street is the restored Marshall House Hotel. Built in 1850’s as Savannah’s first major hotel, it became a Confederate hospital during the Civil War. On the spot originally stood Savannah’s first printing press, and in 1763, the first newspaper, The Georgia Gazette, was published.
