Where Savannah’s Preservation Began!

In 1955, the c. 1820 Isaiah Davenport House was set to be demolished to be made into a surface parking lot.
It was saved by a group of seven women, who would block the demolition, purchase the property and form the Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF).
What began as an effort to save one house quickly turned into an organized movement that went on to save an entire city.
The House opened as a museum in 1963. HSF saved it and preserves it still today.
