For the Love of #Savannah History: Our Historic Jones Street Neighbor

SAVANNAH Georgia (October 15, 2013) -- Combing through the Library of Congress archives recently we found a photo of 117 West Jones Street.

In the background of the photograph (upper right) is Zeigler House Inn, located at 121 West Jones Street, Savannah. In this 1939 (or 1944) photograph is a one-story building in between the homes of 117 West Jones and 121 West Jones. It is obviously out of place by today's standards of historic homes on Jones Street.

The conspicuous little building is not there today. Zeigler House Inn's Jackie Heinz shares some insights.  

"The small building in the middle was built some time after the turn of the century. It was a business that caught fire and was demolished. Once upon a time that historic district lot belonged to Mr. Solomon Zeigler, who owned the inn's land and built our stately home (circa 1858).

"The lot next to us (which would be 119 West Jones Street) was considered a surveyed city lot and, therefore, was sold separately from the main house. After the fire, 119 West Jones remained an empty lot for some time. Later it was bought by our neighbors who owned the brick row house next door (117 West Jones). Today it is their side courtyard garden."

Chilled Tea Party for Two in Savannah at Zeigler House Inn

SAVANNAH Georgia (May 31, 2013) -- You'll love this new perk for lodging guests, staying at Zeigler House Inn in the downtown historic district!

Savannah B&B innkeeper Jackie Heinz
enjoys the new "Chilled Tea Party for Two"
at Zeigler House Inn in Savannah.
Value: $25 per person. Cost: $0
With just enough fanciful flair, caterer-turned-innkeeper Jackie Heinz skirts the predictable to introduce something fresh in Zeigler House Inn's already generous Savannah culinary menu.

The new and complimentary "Refreshing Afternoon Escape: Chilled Tea Party for Two!" includes a tea party menu of singularly steeped, gourmet fruited teas ... quick chilled just prior to serving,savory finger sandwiches, and irresistible tea pastries and cakes. For ultimate freshness, the added-value "Chilled Tea Party for Two" requires a few selections, plus timed reservations -- between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. 

Delightful to the eye and taste buds, this cooling indulgence is for guests (only) who are lodging at the popular Savannah inn. The private afternoon refresher may be served in room, in parlor, or on the breezy porch.

Dismissing the stuffy, southern gentry high tea, Jackie has reclaimed and updated the genteel southern tradition of afternoon tea. Three cheers to gracious southern hospitality at the mannerly and lovable Zeigler House Inn.
