The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

I was very impressed with the large model of the city. It gives an excellent idea of how the squares were formed. It also dramatically maps out the fires.

Nicely laid out museum that shows the history of Savannah and the history of the boarding school. This old school house is the oldest one in Georgia. Most of the objects on display you can touch, making this a great place to take your kids.
