SAVANNAH, Georgia -- Especially for Halloween Savannah visitors will notice that Savannah is always dressed for company. This picturesque southern city has friendly citizens to thank for the ever-ready beauty and infamous southern storytelling.

Savannah's Best Kept Secrets

The main door entry is at second story, parlor level at Zeigler House Inn and in most historic district homes. 

When writing about the 1850s, as compared to the 1840s in September 1917, Charles H. Olstead* shares that Savannah streets were not paved and had no sidewalks. When a brisk breeze blew, the dust storm from the street caused displeasure to pedestrians and housekeepers.  

Today Jones Street is paved with bricks and is one of America's most beautiful residential streets. 

At Zeigler House Inn's elegant bed and breakfast in the uptown Savannah historic district, most of our overly-spacious lodging rooms are upstairs. 

More historical insights from the era of 1840 - 1850:
  • Slave quarters were often on the street level of homes.
  • The prominent political parties were Whigs and Democrats. 
  • Forsyth Park was called "South Commons".
  • Harris Street was the southernmost street. 
  • West Broad Street [now Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard] was first paved with wood planks, then cobblestones to accommodate moving shipments from the Central of Georgia railroad yard (built in 1853) to the shipping wharves located off the lower East Broad Street ramp.

Get away soon and often to the seemingly endless, Old Savannah comforts at Zeigler House Inn, located in uptown Savannah's residential historic district.  


Built in 1856 for Solomon Zeigler -- a prosperous lumber merchant, prominent Savannah citizen and Salzburger* descendant -- the Italianate home is now an historic Savannah bed and breakfast inn located in the heart of Savannah's National Landmark Historic District on beautiful Jones Street.

Original house features include beautiful heart of pine wood floors of the era, elegant ceiling medallions, 11 slate and wood fireplaces, and a dramatic heart of pine staircase embellished with a mahogany and walnut handrail.

Featured on "Wheel of Fortune", Zeigler House Inn was fully renovated in 2002. This romantic getaway inn on magnificent Jones Street affords stately Savannah bed and breakfast lodging with delicious cuisine (compliments of caterer-turned-innkeeper Jackie Heinz, a southern 'steel magnolia' from Kentucky). With French-inspired decor -- a nod to Revolutionary hero, General Marquis de Lafayette -- , the 7 private suites and room afford Europe-meets-Savannah style comforts for a leisure trip and business travel. Each of private suites and rooms uniquely features a private kitchen or kitchenette, plus private bath.
