2017 Annual Report Buildings, Places, & Stories 1
BUILDINGS, PLACES, & STORIES Dear HSF Members/Supporters/Friends: We enjoy writing to you. Not tweeting. Not texting. Not messaging. Writing. It’s an exercise—for both the scrivener and the reader. It requires time and, most importantly, thought. So take the time to read HSF’s 2107 Annual Report. We think you’ll find it worth the effort. If you don’t, then tell us in 140 characters or less (but neither of us are on Twitter). We’ve been thinking about going on strike. Seriously. Okay, not really. But play along. What if we just stopped...showing up at the Historic District Board of Review. Or the Metropolitan Planning Commission. Or the Zoning Board of Appeals. Or City Council. Or any of the myriad other meetings where HSF is expected to be at multiple times a day on any—and often every—day of the week. Maybe we shutter the Davenport House Museum and turn away 40,000 people a year. Maybe we fold the Revolving Fund and let endangered historic buildings find their way to the landfill. Maybe we chuck our educational programs and cease providing free lectures, camps, and programs to the public. Maybe we stop answering the phone and ignore the hundreds of technical assistance questions we get from desperate property owners who need help. Maybe we stop making grants to the City: lighting for the Gen. Oglethorpe statue in Chippewa Square; expanded surveys of historic neighborhoods such as the Victorian District; building assessments for venerable City Hall; and a long overdue and much needed tourism management plan.
organization of “no.” What if we started using “no” in our vocabulary? No, we’re not going to answer that call for help. No, we aren’t going to fund that. No, we’re not going to participate in that meeting. The good news is...no, we’re not going to say no. We love the work we do for you. And we love that we do it with you. We live on a two-way street. We need each other. We’re not asking for the moon. But stop and think. What would Savannah be like without Historic Savannah Foundation? When you ask that question, do it outside and look around you. This Annual Report is full of good news and good deeds. After all, what good is a blank annual report? If we did not get the support we get from you, then we would not be able to fill up an Annual Report. All of you—in one form or another—helped us accomplish what we did in 2017. Well done. And thank you. Help us keep that going in 2018 so we can keep delivering reports chock full of good stuff. Just say yes. And here’s the only tweet you’ll get from us: #gratefulforHSFmembers

We hear—time and time again—that HSF is the
Dedication Reid Williamson, Jr. (1935-2017) Savannah and the country lost one of its preservation giants when Reid Williamson, Jr. passed away last September. Reid was HSF’s first executive director, and he quickly became the standard by which succeeding directors would be measured. Though he was with HSF for only seven years before being lured to run Indiana Landmarks for three decades, Reid left his mark. He helped take the Revolving Fund to scale (Pulaski Square, Troup Square, and other initiatives) and make it a national model. Reid, along with Lee and Emma Adler, helped champion the use of revolving funds around the country and transformed preservation from a dilettante pursuit to a viable tool for urban revitalization. Reid was charming, witty, and bullish on preservation—no matter the risk. HSF carries on Reid’s spirit today as we take on tough, risky, under-the-radar projects in Thomas Square, Cuyler-Brownville, and other neighborhoods where our Revolving Fund can do some good. Likewise, we invoke his courage when taking unpopular stands against developers pushing out-of-scale projects that threaten the integrity of the National Historic Landmark District. Thank you, Reid, for inspiring a generation of us who carry your torch today.

Success Stories “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...” --A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens, ©1859
The same could be said today...of one city...Savannah. Parts of Savannah see this is the best of times: a thriving stock market, low unemployment, robust construction, all-time records for tourism, a new city council working alongside a new city manager, and a city that enjoys an international reputation for hospitality. Other parts of Savannah see the glass half empty: rampant crime and a divided police department, city and county often at odds with each other, high poverty rate, a dearth of affordable/workforce housing, a spate of hotel building and rash of short-term vacation rentals, and a community that might be growing apart more than growing together. Is our work easier in good economic times or bad economic times? To be honest, it’s the same in both... it’s just plain hard all the time. In bad times, it’s disinvestment and demolition-by-neglect of historic resources. In good times, it’s rampant development pressure on historic resources. HSF uses its bully pulpit against forces that parasitically feed off the the city’s unique historic resources, and HSF uses its voice to stave off demolition of historic buildings capable of adaptive or continued use. In 2017, we:
pushed hard for, funding, and fully participating in the development of a long-overdue Tourism Management Plan;
used legal means to fight variances for unnecessary “bonus stories” on new hotels and apartment buildings in the Landmark Historic District and Victorian District;
spoke and wrote against the blind adoption of greater density—especially in areas that are already choked with density (downtown)—simply because the word is in vogue (even if misunderstood)
joined with neighborhood groups and vacation rental interests to develop reasonable new regulations for short term vacation rentals to soothe the fever
Regardless of the times, HSF is constantly vigil: saving buildings, places, and stories that define Savannah’s past, present, and future.
Preservation Awards Vic’s on the River
Since 1965, HSF has recognized projects and individuals for excellence in preservation. This year, HSF acknowledged eleven projects with Preservation Awards for their success in preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and interpretation of our architectural and cultural heritage. Additional awards were bestowed upon Mrs. Uliana Gonzalez, who received the Nichola Parker Coe Volunteer
The Independent Presbyterian Church Campus
The ESPY House
Award; Mr. Greg Gunther, who received the President’s Award; and Emergent Savannah, a grassroots organization created by individuals who are concerned about the shape and future of Savannah, who received the Lee & Emma Adler Award for Advocacy. Competition for HSF’s Preservation Awards is keen; all of the winners can be rightly proud of their work.

Hands on History Program “HSF expanded the Hands on History Program to include the new charter school...with new programming that focuses on a fundamental element of Savannah’s history and identity - the squares of Oglethorpe’s city plan. The lesson teaches students about history and preservation and helps instill a sense of value for our city.”
Our Hands On History (HOH) Program offers middle school and high school students the opportunity to engage in projects that give them firsthand experience with the positive impacts of historic preservation and a deeper understanding Savannah’s unique heritage. Annual instruction such as Box City gives the students a basic understanding of architecture, urban planning, and community development. In coordination with the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, HSF selects professionals in preservation and related industries to visit schools in a series of inperson lectures and how-to demonstrations, which open students’ minds to the possibility of preservation as a career. In 2017, HSF expanded the Hands on History Program to include the new charter school, Savannah Classical Academy, with new programming that focuses on a fundamental element of
Savannah’s history and identity – the squares of Oglethorpe’s city plan. The lesson teaches students about history and preservation and helps instill a sense of value for our city. This year, the curriculum focused on Ellis Square. All students in Savannah Classical Academy visited Ellis Square and participated in grade-appropriate lesson plans. The Hands On History Program is complemented by the annual Hands On History Summer Camp. Thanks to the generosity of Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation and our HOH sponsors, Choate Interiors and the City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs’ Weave-A-Dream grant, the HOH Camp is free and open to all students in Chatham County. Students are immersed in Savannah’s history while visiting the Massie School, the Davenport House, Old Fort Jackson, Tybee Island, and the Coastal Heritage Society’s Georgia State Railroad Museum.
Davenport House Year of Generosity, Chance, Continuity, Opportunity, and Planning
The Museum is responsive to opportunities and always weighs carefully the benefits (new audiences and income) and consequences (to the building, facility, staff and existing partnerships) of any new endeavor. Among many opportunities of which the DH availed itself in 2016-2017, there are two worthy of note – the exterior filming (which impacted the Museum interior) of the TV series “Underground” and a photo shoot by the retailer Vera Bradley. The Museum is fortunate that new staff member Rebecca Bustinduy has experience managing professional photo shoots. Taking care of our historic buildings remains the DH’s first priority, because it cannot do anything without well-maintained resources. At the beginning of our fiscal year in October, as the DH was finishing up a series of repairs, Hurricane Matthew rolled in. Led by Maintenance Technician Raleigh Marcell, the Museum prepared the site, as good stewards should, and weathered the Category 1 hurricane with little damage. The DH was the first local museum of resume business following the storm.
Every house has a story. We at the Davenport House are just lucky that we can flesh out ours and tell it to interested people. This past year in particular has been one of fleshing out. As the DH and HSF embark on an important expansion of the Museum campus, two committees have formed to inform and develop expansive ways to tell our shared story, and in so doing, reach and inspire more people. An Urban Slavery Exhibit Committee, which is led by designer Doug Mund of dmdg2, is comprised of staff, scholars and museum leaders. They are focused on creating an exhibit and an experience which brings the lives of the enslaved workers, Ned, Davy, Bella, Jack, Isaac, Jacob, Polly, Nancy and Peggy, who lived and worked in the Davenport household in the 1820s, into clarity. Through shared reading, research and visiting other sites, the Committee’s work continues. A second committee, the Community Engagement Committee, is equally committed to the Museum’s expansion and is strategizing ways to reach out beyond the Museum’s door to educators and to the local community for
The past year has been one of profound generosity to the DH. The passing of leaders Betty Butler, Elizabeth Muller and Lib Yingling brought remembrances, which will have a lasting effect on the Museum. The Museum community came together for a new type of fundraising to take the place of its successful Oyster Roast for a year. Davenport Soiree, chaired by Diane Kaufman and her crew of volunteers worked on the DH’s behalf in creating a fantastic event which is allowing the Museum to address needed maintenance projects, including repairing the northeast corner of the Kennedy Pharmacy building, upgrading computers and acquiring its first ever computer server. We are grateful that staff member Jeff Freeman has technical expertise to facilitate the acquiring and managing of the equipment upgrades. The bedrock of all things DH is it people - be they event volunteers, DH Committee and Endowment leaders, docents, living history performers, dancers, interns, Junior Interpreters and shop volunteers – they are ready to aid the Museum and put their best face forward of the multitude for visitors every day!
input and validation. As part of the process during the summer, Nobis Project, managed by Savannah State University professor Christian Clougherty, used the DH’s story as a community involvement project for educators who participated in two summer workshops. In addition to story development, 2016-2017 was one of change and opportunity for the DH. With staff retirements the previous year, a new wind of excitement and energy has enveloped the Museum. The new Shop Manager, Gaye Kurmas, engaged 19 new ventures for shop merchandise, creating what we believe is the most appealing Museum shop in Savannah. Our first ever Tour Coordinator, Rebecca Bustinduy, who began work in September 2016, has facilitated a whole new way of doing business with tour companies and scheduling staff to manage our bustling tour business. We expect by the end of the fiscal year to have seen 43,000 visitors, a total the DH has not seen since the halcyon days following the publication of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
105 E 39th Street (Thomas Square Streetcar)
Revolving Fund In the HSF archives there’s an old yellowed newspaper clipping featuring a photo we are particularly fond of. It’s an image of a young Reid Williamson, HSF’s first executive director, standing confidently in front of an old dilapidated historic building on Bay Street. Tucked under his arm is a “For Sale” sign. It was 1968, and the HSF Revolving Fund was in full swing - buying, saving, rehabbing and selling endangered/vacant historic properties that may have otherwise been lost… including those dilapidated buildings on Bay Street.
The Thomas Square Streetcar neighborhood became a local district in 2005. Winning designation was a huge victory because it provided a layer of protection in the form of oversight and review when owners tried to alter the exterior or demolish any contributing buildings within the district.
It was a golden era for the program, which had begun only eight years earlier and quickly rose to national prominence, inspiring repeated emulation by other organizations across the country. In the simplest terms, it is the program that saved Savannah. Reid, among others, had a lot to do with its early success. In those heady days, HSF moved throughout the National Historic Landmark District taking risks, saving everything they could, and making a difference. This leadership emboldened other private interests to also invest in saving buildings and the collective impact grew exponentially. This past year, while HSF was cleaning out one of its newest Revolving Fund properties at 105 E. 39th, we found a familiar artifact - an old ‘For Sale’ sign rendered in the distinctive fashion of an era in which sign painters were still plying their trade with some regularity. It was an early HSF ‘For Sale’ sign, identical to the one Reid Williamson held in that 1968 photo. It was one of those perfect moments in which the past speaks to the present, reminding us that the pioneering work of people like Reid Williamson, or Lee Adler, or Anna Hunter is still just as relevant today as it was then. We take it as a literal sign to keep pushing the
boundaries of what the Revolving Fund is capable of: grow it, take calculated risks, and expand its impact… just as was done 50 years ago. HSF’s Revolving Fund is alive and well. Good thing…as there is still so much work to do. Each of the Revolving Fund properties HSF acquired this year were located in a different historic neighborhood - the National Historic Landmark District, Victorian District, and Thomas Square Streetcar. Each neighborhood has a unique and distinct character and story, as does each Revolving Fund property.
Among the many people who helped make the new district possible was Charlotte Walker. It was inside the property formerly owned by Ms. Walker that HSF found the ‘For Sale’ sign after they purchased it from her last year. Today, Ms. Walker fondly recounts days spent knocking on doors to gain support for the designation and working with neighbors and the city. She speaks of her old neighborhood and the residents with great fondness, but it is the house at 105 E. 39th she reserves the most reverence. Her father bought it in the 1940s, and she grew up there. Ms. Walker, already familiar with the work of HSF, said she was comforted to know that it would be in good hands.
issues, it retains many remarkable features like original fireplace mantels, an impressive staircase (featured on the back cover of this report), and even an original gasolier sconce with its hand-blown glass shade still in the upstairs hall. The neighborhood where this house resides is named after Thomas Square - the large park near its epicenter. Back in the late 19th century much of the neighborhood was still farmland. As more people like Mr. Armand began to build homes, locals started referring to the area as the “southern suburbs” or “extended limits.” It was far enough south that the only feasible way to reach the neighborhood back in those days was the new streetcar line, hence its full name - the Thomas Square Streetcar District.
Originally, the house was built in 1898 for Ernest A. Armand and his wife Hattie. Mr. Armand was employed as a City Passenger & Ticket Agent for the Plant System Railroad. There are two other homes on the same block of 39th that are nearly identical, and all likely had the same builder; 105 E. 39th is by far the most intact and original of the three. Despite being vacant for many years with some resulting condition 15
625 E Broad Street
1316/18 Price St
(National Historic Landmark District)
Standing on the front porch at 625 E. Broad, Detria Hall is transported back to her childhood.“I just remember all the cook-outs and get-togethers here,” she says. Ms. Hall, who sold the property to HSF this year, grew up in the house during the late 1960s and 70s surrounded by family. She recalls when her mother, aunts, uncles, and grandparents all lived in the three identical cottageduplexes which front Broad and Nichols Street, as well as other neighboring buildings. It was the epicenter of the whole family she says. Ms. Hall’s grandmother operated a laundry in the commercial building right next door. To this day, the tree lawn in front is still dotted with plants potted inside the old washing machine drums salvaged when the laundry closed.
built this cluster of cottages, she had been widowed for a decade or more. Her late husband, Charles H. Goetke, owned and operated both a saloon and grocery store. It is possible she used proceeds from those businesses to fund her development projects. Of her five original cottages, only three survive today. It is believed they were constructed with the intent of providing housing for the workers at the adjacent Plant System Railroad yard on East Broad - the site of today’s East Broad Elementary School. The early years of tenant history reveal a high turn-over rate of strictly working-class individuals, the majority employed by the railroad. Tenants were married, single, and widowed; and both White and African American.
The family’s stewardship of those properties dates back four generations to Ms. Hall’s great-grandparents, who bought them in the 1930s when the area was predominantly African American. Though technically part of the Landmark District, the area surrounding this house is known today as the ‘Beach Institute neighborhood,’ which takes its name from a nearby schoolhouse built for African Americans by the Freedman’s Bureau in 1867 following the Civil War. Named for Alfred Ely Beach, the building still stands as the heart of the neighborhood as a cultural center.
HSF is approaching this property differently. Rather than sell the cottage to a preservation-minded buyer to complete the rehab, HSF is considering rehabbing this property and holding it long term as a revenue source to help fund operations; all in an effort to make the Revolving Fund more self-sustaining. In the long run, HSF hopes to acquire other similar properties for the same purpose.
Originally, this cottage was one of five built by Matilda Goetke in 1898. Not much is known about her, but what we do know paints a picture of a resourceful, enterprising, and independent woman. At the time she 16 16
Vacant for many years after the death of Ms. Hall’s mother, 625 East Broad slowly fell into disrepair. Recently, while standing on the front porch with HSF staff and talking about the house’s bright future, she looks at it with a smile and says, “now I don’t need to feel sad every time I see it.”
HSF’s most recent Revolving Fund property is a twostory, wood-frame duplex built in 1913 and located in the Victorian District. Like the property on Broad Street, this one was also built as work-force housing. The men and women who built this city and kept it running locked these doors behind them each morning and returned every evening to eat dinner with their families and rest from their labors. The earliest residents at this property were a clerk, a fireman, and their spouses. Designated in 1974, the Savannah Victorian District is notable for the large number of distinctive and decorative wood-frame Italianate and Queen-Anne style homes. Following the Civil War, crowded living conditions downtown and technological advances, such as paved streets, a streetcar system, and electricity, promoted the development of suburban residences. When a streetcar system was installed in 1869, real estate developers followed its tracks, building inexpensive frame houses in the southern edges of the city.
to complete the rehab. Those looking for a great investment opportunity at a prime intersection, right across the street from SCAD's Anderson Hall will want to watch this one closely. Between the sidewalk and street - small garden in front of each house. Frame construction abounds in the Victorian District, as the fire ordinance prohibiting frame buildings in the older sections of the city did not extend to this area. Consequently, sturdy frame houses with exuberant architectural details were built in the Victorian District between 1870 and 1910. In later years, the advent of the automobile drew residents from the Victorian District to other suburban areas, leaving it economically depressed and ripe for absentee landlords. Revitalization of the Victorian District continues to thrive, due to the interest and investment of residents, local businesses, and Historic Savannah Foundation.
Nineteenth century developers did not strictly follow Oglethorpe’s city plan of squares into the southern reaches of the city. Rather, the streets were arranged on a grid pattern and the squares replaced with a green planting area By the time this annual report is published, HSF will have conducted a volunteer cleanup of this property, commissioned measured drawings, and solicited an RFP in search of a preservation-minded buyer 17
Preservation Festival Block Party “Guerry Lumber could not think of a better way to celebrate our 90th Anniversary than to partner with the principal historic preservation organization in town, Historic Savannah Foundation, for a fantastic Block Party event. Both Guerry & HSF understand the need for and importance of proper preservation and the two have been long-time partners, working to keep Savannah beautiful throughout the years. We at Guerry Lumber look forward to continuing our relationship as we move forward into our next decade. Thank you for letting us be a part of your Preservation Festival celebration! “ - Erin Clay, Marketing Coordinator, Guerry Lumber Company

Volunteers Each year HSF grows its volunteer program. This past year, a little over 170 passionate volunteers provided the significant additional time and effort needed to successfully execute HSFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many programs and events.
Volunteer Highlights Gala, October 2016 The first event in the HSF fiscal year began as we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the National Historic Landmark District at the annual Gala. The devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew were only a week old, yet a team of determined volunteers rallied to clear the remaining debris to ensure Columbia Square appeared as welcoming as ever during our largest annual event. Gala volunteer support is incredibly hands-on. From assisting with event setup the day prior, to carefully placing centerpieces and arranging dĂŠcor just before, followed by graciously welcoming and guiding guest as the BIG NIGHT convenes. Then, finally pulling together once again to guarantee the site bears little trace of the 400 plus guest in attendance the night before. Nevertheless, the opportunity to contribute to this much-loved annual event ensures its position as a favorite with volunteers.
Skidaway Island Marathon & Half Marathon, March 2017 For a third year, HSF has underscored its commitment to community involvement by partnering with Race Endurance Services and OptimOrthopedic to support the Skidaway Island Marathon & Half Marathon, often referred to as Run Skidaway. This past March, HSF secured over 30 volunteers to support participants by monitoring one of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical water stations, and offering immediate aid as HSF volunteers cheered runners across the finish line. The volunteers who came out highlighted the dependable nature of the many individuals who support HSF, and with the Race for Preservation held each year just prior to Run Skidaway, our volunteers were seasoned and ready.
Savannah Preservation Festival, May 2017 The 6th annual Savannah Preservation Festival featured four unique events over two weeks, starting with the popular Wine Tasting & Home Tour. Volunteers aided
with event check-in and served as house docents at one of four private residences along historic Jones Street. A lecture highlighting woman in preservation followed at the River Street Inn. Uliana Gonzalez received the Nichola Parker Coe Volunteer of the Year award at the Preservation Awards Luncheon, which also acknowledged the best of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation and compatible new design projects. After a not so minor rain postponement, volunteers re-committed to add logistical support at the fun-filled Block Party at the Guerry Lumber Yard. Nearly 40 volunteers in total devoted their time and energy guaranteeing a memorable festival of events. We cannot thank the hundreds of volunteers who serve HSF each year enough. Volunteering is a fundamental and fun way to show your support. With a full calendar of exciting programs and events the perfect opportunity is waiting for you!
Interview with Mrs. Uliana Gonzalez 2017 HSF Volunteer of the Year As a past intern of HSF, what was your favorite project? My work on digitizing HSF’s newspaper clipping archives dating back to 1956. It was thrilling for me to have first-hand access to invaluable articles that were carefully collected that lead us through the development of historic preservation movement in Savannah. Having volunteered for virtually every HSF program and event, which is your favorite? Why? Oh! The Wine Tasting and Home Tour! Besides my passion to wine, we get to see private historic houses, not usually open to the public, that are meticulously restored with soul and in good taste. The homeowners are also very friendly and their unique personalities are often reflected in the renovated interiors. With international knowledge of preservation methods and techniques, how does Savannah compare to other cities that emphasize preserving distinct architectural and cultural elements?
“The City of Savannah made a great impression on me. It filled me with a sense of deep respect for the residents and experts who take care of and maintain this unique city. It was a great piece of luck to work with such creative, hard-working, talented people who are passionate about the work they are doing. It inspired, motivated and energized me...I have gained invaluable experience of successful preservation work and the proper usage of the distinctive and rich architectural heritage in the U.S. I can safely claim that my Motherland has a lot to learn.”
For now, I can only compare Savannah to the Russian, Ukrainian and Polish historic preservation-minded cities. In my opinion, Savannah constantly absorbs worldwide best practices and progressive knowledge in this field. This strategy makes the city superior in historic preservation sphere. Savannah’s experience clearly demonstrates that cooperation between government, businesses and public organizations can ensure the implementation of effective policies in historic city development and revitalization. Is there any foreign City that reminds you of Savannah? How is it similar? Savannah reminds me of the city where I was born in Ukraine – Uzhhorod. It’s a small European border city oriented towards the Uzh River that is very multicultural,
cozy, and rich in history and architecture. Uzhhorod is also divided into small blocks with lots of public green space, a humanized city scale and relaxed pace. With such a comprehensive understanding in the field of historic preservation, what area attracts and inspires you the most? As an architect, I am strongly attracted to redevelopment opportunities. I’m inspired by laconic additions of new buildings into the existing historic fabric, preservation oriented renovations, successful examples of rehabilitation projects, revitalization of abandoned hopeless building complexes, and the reincarnation of postindustrial constructions. What do you think are the most important aspects of historic preservation to share with future generations? The significance of discovering, examining, protecting, plus thoughtful renovation of historic architecture. Understanding the evolution of historic districts and how they transform with time, development and economy. Lastly, how important it is to ensure the continuity of all current efforts.
ABOUT ULIANA Uliana has her Masters in Civic Architecture and is currently a PhD student in Historic Preservation at the Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning Lodz University of Technology in Poland. In 2010, she received first place at the XIX International Competition in restoration and renovation of Ukrainian architectural monuments.
