For Immediate Release
Date: January 2, 2013
Residents and visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at Savannah City Hall, and view special exhibits highlighting chapters of Savannah’s history, during next week’s First Tuesday Tour of City Hall. This month’s tour was moved to the second Tuesday of the month because of the New Year’s holiday.
The January tour begins at noon Tuesday, Jan. 8, in the City Hall Rotunda, and lasts less than an hour. The Tour is free, but space is limited and reservation is required. To reserve a space, contact City of Savannah Research Library & Municipal Archives Director Luciana Spracher at (912) 651-6411 or Lspracher@savannahga.gov.
The First Tuesday Tour series gives an overview of the history, architecture, and art of historic City Hall. Participants will also hear stories about some of the City’s more fascinating characters, learn about their City government, and view two exhibits in Council Chambers dedicated to the Nuclear Ship Savannah and the former Savannah Pharmacy located on MLK Boulevard.
The First Tuesday Tour of City Hall is just one of the ways that the City of Savannah is making City Hall more accessible to the public. To learn more about City Hall, go to www.savannahga.gov, and type in “Birth of City Hall” in the Search bar.
