Ardmore residents invited to History Round-up Day

For Immediate Release
Date: October 12, 2017

The City of Savannah invites all current and former residents of Ardmore to take part in an upcoming History Round-up Day to help document and preserve the unique history of this neighborhood. City of Savannah archivists will be on hand at the The Habersham School, at the historic Gould Cottage, 505 East 54th Street, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 21 for the History Round-up Day.

Residents are asked to bring in photographs and memorabilia related to the neighborhood, as well as participate in the Oral History Station where they can share memories of their community through mini-oral history interviews. City archivists will digitize the items and interviews for the City of Savannah Municipal Archives, where they will be available to all citizens for future research and access.

In preparation for the History Round-up Day, residents are encouraged to gather photographs and two-dimensional items, as well as start reminiscing with neighbors and jotting down notes about memories of the neighborhood. The City is interested in documenting a range of aspects of the neighborhood, including what Ardmore looked like at different times in history, particularly its early years, as well as community events and activities, community leaders, and area churches, businesses, and schools.

For more information, contact Luciana Spracher, Director, City of Savannah Research Library & Municipal Archives, at Lspracher@savannahga.gov or (912) 651-6411.
