The 77th Annual Savannah House and Garden Tour begins this Thursday

Springtime in Savannah.
The azaleas.  The Spanish Moss.  The classic southern charm.
The 77th Annual Savannah House and Garden Tour begins this Thursday and through the weekend:  March 22 – 25.
Visit the Tickets page for more information.
A seasonal rite, the Tour presents a special opportunity to view some of Savannah’s private homes. Many several seminars and events are also on the agenda.  Another must-have is the annual poster designed by Wray Williamson, whose stunning artistry has graced tour posters since 1992.
History…
Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Edward Oglethorpe. This colonial vision incorporated a residential grid–interspersed with leafy public squares. This historic vision blossomed into a bustling seaport that survived the Civil War ravages to retain classic gracious southern charm amid the iron grilles and blooming gardens.
Ardsley Park, Savannah’s first planned suburban area, recently celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Save-the-date is requisite locally, while Savannah beckons visitors to enjoy its springtime charms.
This elegant annual event is presented by The Women of Christ Church and the Historic Savannah Foundation.
Home and Garden Tours are self-guided with a different group of six to nine sites featured each day.  Our guests may visit these selected sites in any order during the scheduled touring allotments.
Events include:
Luncheon at Paula Deen’s Famous Lady and Sons restaurant
An antiques seminar hosted by a well known community dealer
The Tall Tea at a prestigious private club
A lecture about Civil War Savannah
A guided tour of historic Bonaventure Cemetery
Riverboat Gospel Brunch
+ the Gardener’s Walks
Join all the elegant fun.
Enjoy some sweet tea and this sweet slice of history.
