Date: May 3, 2013
Residents and visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at Savannah City Hall, and view special exhibits highlighting chapters of Savannah’s history, during the First Tuesday Tour of City Hall which is set for next Tuesday, May 7.
The tour begins at noon, in the City Hall Rotunda, and lasts less than an hour. The Tour is free, but space is limited and reservation is required. To reserve a space, contact City of Savannah Research Library & Municipal Archives Director Luciana Spracher at (912) 651-6411 or Lspracher@savannahga.gov.
The First Tuesday Tour series gives an overview of the history, architecture, and art of historic City Hall. Participants will also hear stories about some of the City’s more fascinating characters, learn about their City government, and view two exhibits in Council Chambers dedicated to the City’s International & Sister-City Relationships and the historic Savannah Pharmacy business (1914–2007) located on MLK Boulevard. An additional exhibit in the 1st floor Rotunda is a display of winning artwork from the City’s National Arts Program competition that is open to City employees and family members.
The First Tuesday Tour of City Hall is just one of the ways that the City of Savannah is making City Hall more accessible to the public.
