What Does Beautiful Jones Street Bring To The Savannah GA Party: Modern-day Favorite Spots Include Zeigler House Inn

SAVANNAH Georgia -- Since the mid-1800s Jones Street in downtown Savannah has been a popular street for porch sitters. The wide, brick street minimized the dust and air conditioning enticed residents indoors. 

Now guests, and our own innkeeper Jackie Heinz, will tell you that time on the veranda overlooking Jones Street is magical! 




If one took a broad slice of Savannah's favorite places and history, historic Jones Street would deliver up a thick volume of story-rich tales. Many major events that touched Savannah, touches also Jones Street.

When we add southern food and hospitality accolades, dash the list with a few movie locations and favorite spots, Jones Street's notoriety swells rapidly to include architecture, literature, health and medicine, prohibition, philanthropy, the arts, military life, religion, education, agriculture, industry, travel, commerce and trade, and more (that academics and historians will better know)!
"In the Savannah plan the east-west streets midway between the squares were given more generous dimension. Broughton, Oglethorpe, Liberty and Jones are all wider than other cross-town streets.... The houses on Jones Street are sheltered by live oaks that often meet above to form an evergreen canopy." --  SAVANNAH by Malcolm Bell, Jr.
