Summary

Significance: The Victorian District, located just south of the original settlement in Savannah, represents a fairly intact neighborhood of well-built frame houses, many of which are ornamented with the exuberant sawn-work details of the late nineteenth-century carpenter-builder. For this reason alone it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Residents looking for a convenient inner-city neighborhood find its architecture has great aesthetic value and a pleasing human scale. The District is also the testing ground of a unique conservation effort to renew a valuable but deteriorated housing stock, to attract a solid economic base, and to integrate new compatible construction without displacing the low- and moderate-income homeowners and renters who have lived there for several generations.
