In Civil War Savannah, Zeigler House Inn’s Wise Mr. Zeigler Played A Pivotal Role

Zeigler House Inn in Savannah, Georgia survived
the American Civil War (1861-1865). Residing on historic
Jones Street, the family mansion was built in 1856.
SAVANNAH Georgia (July 15, 2013) – Many of Savannah’s prominent leading men took part in the decision to surrender Savannah during the American Civil War.

The builder and first owner of Zeigler House Inn -- lumber merchant and prominent citizen Solomon Zeigler attended and voted to save the city.

Some say the cotton sitting on the docks at the Port of Savannah saved the city. Others credit the wise City Fathers, business leaders, and the stalwart women of the city. Each played important roles.

Travel to Savannah, the southern city that was the Christmas gift to U.S. President Abraham Lincoln (1864).
