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!

Great history of the school, with a school room that will take you back in time. Also includes history of Savannah architecture .

So OK, it's another old building with old furniture but you can watch the interactive model of Savannah which will show you which parts burned and were rebuilt as well as military advancements and retreats throughout. Upstairs is an authentic classroom and a separate building...More

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.

Highly recommend for both children and adults. This Center offers a realistic picture of life in Savannah through pre-revolutionary war, revolutionary war and civil war. It focuses on early settlers, the lay-out of Savannah as a city, architecture and education. Wonderful interactive exhibits for children...More
