Savannah is the oldest city in the state of Georgia and is the county seat of Chatham County. Established in 1733 on the Savannah River, the city of Savannah became the British colonial capital of the Province of Georgia and later the first state capital of Georgia. A strategic port city in the American Revolution and during the American Civil War.
Each year, Savannah attracts millions of visitors to its cobblestone streets, parks, and notable historic buildings. These buildings include the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA), the Georgia Historical Society (the oldest continually operating historical society in the South), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South's first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African-American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third-oldest synagogue in the U.S.), and the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in the U.S. and now a museum and visitor center).
Our 3D wood map of the Savannah begins with the precise depth measurements from a bathymetric chart. An artist laser cuts Baltic birch pieces into the gulf's exact shorelines, layering them together to create the depth, dimension, and beauty that make our wood charts famous. The water is hand-stained, and points of interest, roads, and water depths are engraved into the nautical map’s surface. It is finished with a custom size wood frame and a durable piece of acrylic glass for protection.
