....A city of remarkable architectural style and charm. Live oaks draped with Spanish moss grace the streets
and squares, still intact since the city's original layout in 1733. Founded by an English gentleman, General
James Edward Oglethorpe, Savannah's charm and intrigue linger in the Landmark Historic District of Southern
mansions and townhouses. Magnificent churches and museum houses make the visitor's experience a journey back
to times of enormous wealth and style. Filled with history in every step, America's most beautiful city is
best experienced by walking slowly, savoring the lovingly preserved ambience of over two hundred bygone years.
"There are vaster and wealthier cities, but for architectural simplicity, for
an indescribable charm about its streets and buildings, its parks and squares,
there is but one Savannah. Without a rival, without an equal, it stands unique."
The Reverend Timothy Harley, a visiting nineteenth century minister.
