Old Shipping Heritage
Savannah was founded in 1733 and since that time has maintained a principle industry of seafarers and shipping. The SS Savannah was the first steamer to sail the Atlantic Ocean, leaving Savannah in 1817 and took 27 days to get to Liverpool.
While that might be a unique trivia point, it does not change the fact that sailboats, riverboats and others have frequented Savannah's ports for three centuries. This 'Ship Supplies and Warehouse' storefront gives evidence to the long alignment to the sea.
The city offers a magnificient window into the past, framed by enomous live oaks, fragrant Confederate jasmine and brilliant azela blooms.
