AAA Editor Notes
Massie Heritage Center is at 207 E. Gordon St. (street parking only). The center, a unit of the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools, is housed in three 19th-century Greek Revival buildings situated on Calhoun Square in the Historic Landmark District. Massie School served as a public elementary school, Savannah's first from its opening in 1856, until it was closed in 1974. Building highlights include a 19th-century classroom, a 3-D interactive laser show of Savannah's city plan, the Native American Room, artifacts from the Victorian era, examples of city architectural styles and hands-on activities for children. In the Massie Maritime Gallery, nineteen handmade model ships are on display.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 45 minutes minimum.
