Savannah’s First Suburb
Adjacent to the Historic District, this southward expansion of the city starts at Forsyth Park and extends to Anderson Street. MLK and E. Broad St. border it to the east and west. Another highly pedestrian area of town, this district is still perfect for students and professionals alike. Though the land was once a parade ground, its development saw the construction of sturdy wood frame houses with whimsical details and quaint front gardens.
The Victorian District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (since 1974) and features some of the most outstanding examples of post-Civil War architecture in the Deep South. True to its name, most of the homes in this neighborhood are Victorian in style, being 2-story, wood frame houses with gingerbread trim and stained-glass windows. Many of these homes were built between 1870 and 1910, and are built from both wood and brick in a variety of sizes. Many of these houses feature porches, either in front or in back, or both, and some have small courtyards. Those who are looking for a renovation project or a fixer-upper can usually find what they are looking for in the Victorian District, as there are several homes in this area that have real potential and just need a little sprucing up.
Those who live in the Victorian District will find Downtown Savannah to be easily accessible, especially by bicycle or on foot. The Victorian District also has its share of shops, restaurants and diversions. Forsyth Park is within the streets that make up this neighborhood, which means that residents of the Victorian District are close to the Forsyth Farmers’ Market, which is held every Saturday in Forsyth Park.
