Savannah City Hall

When the original design of the City Hall building inSavannah 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. The first City council meeting took place in the then City Exchange Building on January 3, 1906. A spectacular architectural masterpiece, City Hall features a domed roof that rises 70 feet into the air.

The second floor of the building is still home to the Mayor’s office and Council Chambers and visitors can see the Hall of Mayors, containing photographs and paintings of past mayors since 1790.
