Luciana M. Spracher
Since its founding over 250 years ago, Savannah has become a historic preservation goldmine, exhibiting a variety of architectural styles. However, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the area experienced heavy economic growth, during which numerous buildings were demolished regardless of age or condition to make way for newer – and supposedly better – structures. The community lost many important landmarks, architectural masterpieces, and some of its history. Lost Savannah takes a close look at these vanished buildings to document their existence and role in Savannah’s past.
