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!

This was a neat place to stop and kill some time. Staff was very eager to help and talk to you about the center. They have a map of the city that is a must see!

Was a nice surprise for us to visit. The tickets came with our Oglethorpe Trolley Tour, so we went on whim and was very pleased.

We went here during our tour of Savannah. It was raining and thought it would be a good break. Cool place especially the display on the first floor.

We stopped here the other day and found it just OK. They had some small exhibits on Native Americans --good, architecture --somewhat good, but not enough explanation about terms they used. We did like how they showed examples of many different styles via local photos....More
