Built in 1899 by Cord Asendorf, this magnificent house is considered among the finest examples of Steamboat Gothic architecture in America. Today, The Gingerbread House is one of Savannah’s leading caterers and is the site of countless romantic weddings, anniversary parties and other festivities.
The history of the Live Oak Public Libraries can be traced back to the turn of the century in Savannah. Established in 1903, the Savannah Public Library consisted of a 23,000 volume collection housed in one room of the Georgia Historical Society. Ten years later the Carnegie Library opened on East Henry Street to serve Savannah’s black community.
Surrounded by late-Victorian homes and adjacent to a small city park modeled on the squares in historic downtown Savannah the main library building on Bull Street opened for use in 1916. The library was built at a cost of $104,041.78 with a Carnegie grant. Its neoclassical design was provided by architect H. W. Witcover, who also designed Savannah’s City Hall. This area was first developed in 1910, but most homes were built in the 1930s and 1940s. The neighborhood is considered one of the most affluent within city limits by local residents.
Marketed as Chatham Crescent by Granger’s Chatham Land and Hotel Company, the Granger Tract took its design from the Beaux Arts plan popular at the time. At various points in the neighborhood, city blocks were punctuated with 1-acre (4,000 m2) circles (named for city and county officials), a crescent-shaped street, and a landscaped mall.
At the end of the palmetto-lined mall stretching between Maupas Avenue to 47th Street was to be the centerpiece of Chatham Crescent – a magnificent tourist facility called the Hotel Georgia. The Spanish Revival-style hotel was designed by noted architect Henrik Wallin, who assisted Henry Bacon with New York’s Astor Hotel. Apparently the developers hoped that wealthy Northerners would check into what was to be a luxurious hotel and decide to purchase a second home in Chatham Crescent. Unfortunately, the hotel encountered numerous problems and barely got off the ground.
Eventually, Savannah High School (now the Savannah Arts Academy) was built on the nearly eight acres of land set aside for the hotel. This building was constructed in 1897-98 as a memorial to General Alexander R. Lawton (1818-96) and his daughter, Corinne (1844-77). It was used as a public space for cultural, educational and civic purposes until the 1930s. After serving in the Georgia House of Representatives and as president of Georgia and Atlantic Railroad, Lawton served as Brigadier General and Quartermaster-General of the Confederacy, as ambassador to Austria- Hungary, and as fifth president of the American Bar Association. Chartered in 1907, St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church acquired the building as its sanctuary in 1941. There is a lot of modern style with an oriental flair to this little neighborhood bar. The most popular special during the week is the one-dollar drink that is served often on Tuesday evenings. The actual cocktail varies with each week.
Of all the offerings on the menu, the chicken dumplings are among the local favorites. $9 This quaint little cafe is quite popular among local artisans and SCAD students and is easy to see why. It hosts a wide range of amenities, from live entertainment on Tuesdays, to organic coffees, soups, and a myriad of flavorful desserts. Engage in intimate social settings, meet locals and students, or study in an atmosphere of gorgeous prints and graphic artwork.
Perhaps one of the most popular items on the menu, is their assortment of fresh tacos. This one, made of chicken, in combination with other ingredients, becomes a delicious tidbit that one may enjoy. $3.75 The 5 Spot is a comfortable, casual neighborhood bar and restaurant frequented by many of the locals. It takes some familiarity of Savannah to find it, but what a pleasant little secret awaits those who do.
The Grilled Salmon plate ($14) comes with sweet and spicy basted salmon over fresh spinach with grilled tomatoes, onions, and roasted peppers. I found it to be quite delicious. To drink, I had a few glasses of Resling ($8 each). Ordered a chicken gumbo & rice for 6$ and a key lime cup cake to go! In love with this place. This used to be where blue turtle bisto resides. Glad kayak cafe kept the look. Great chicken lime burrito Beef and tripe soup!!! Elegant place and clean, service from simple people. Very soothing here Lunch at Toucan Cafe. This is quite nice, a wine chiller. No bologna here Lunch special snack Box
5.99
Rib snack box includes 4 ribs, 1/2 lb backed potato salad and a petite baguette. Goat curry, cabbage and rice. Small place, not a sit down area. The place smells like the islands and very quick mama kind of service. Savannah's signature live oak trees. Just darling. I live for the scenic route. Lunch Menu
The Pasta Bowl made for vegetarians.
Very healthy food Really large portions for under $10! This is the low country boil. A local BBQ, seafood, and Southern food small chain that locals go to, open since 1971.
