  Bay Street/Factor’s Walk    
  orange line    
 

In 1817, Factor’s Walk was the original site for the Cotton Exchange. The area got its name because this is where the men, called factors, walked back and forth through the several stories of buildings in this center of commercial activity. It was their job to factor how much cotton came in to be sold and to make things more productive, a network of iron and concrete walkways connected the buildings.

Savannah City Hall
 

 

When the original design of the City Hall building called for ornate statues of chariots and horses, the cost to build such a structure was around $200,000—a monumental sum in those days. To keep the cost down, the statues were excluded from the final plans and the Renaissance Revival building began to be constructed. Built in 1901, the structure replaced the original 1799 building and was an impressive sight located on Yamacraw Bluff.

Washington Guns

Sitting peacefully under a canopy just east of City Hall, the Washington Guns are a quiet reminder to the explosive conflicts facing our country during the Revolutionary War. The cannons, mounted on oak carriages on a platform, were captured from the British in the Battle of Yorktown. George Washington gifted them to the Chatham Artillery militia company of Savannah in 1791 after he visited the city.

Oglethorpe Bench
 
 
 

A meaningful reminder of the leader that is responsible for creating the city of Savannah, the Oglethorpe Bench is located on Bay Street. The Bench was built in 1906 and is said to be situated on the very spot where General James Edward Oglethorpe pitched a tent and rested on the first night he spent in Georgia. The curved granite bench is a lovely site, with curved steps leading up to it. A stone mosaic decorates the top step making it an interesting and beautiful complement. Tourists enjoy seeing the bench which marks the spot, a historic moment in time captured for all to treasure.

Elevators to River Street
   
  orange line    
  To some, the steps that lead to River Street may seem a little steep. Some of the hotels and restaurants offer an elevator that takes you directly down to street level, putting you right in the center of everything you’d want to see and do. There’s also an outdoor elevator to transport visitors to Bay Street from River Street - a quick and convenient way to travel back and forth between the two areas. Located between the Hyatt and City Hall.
