The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

We stopped off here on our walk through the historic center of Savannah and were very glad we did. It helped us understand what we had seen already and prepared us for a lot more that we were about to see.

Great exhibits to view. From how Savannah was first planned, to the different architecture of the area and how schools were I days gone by. A must for familes, educators or history buffs.

The Massie Heritage Center is a former school that now contains a museum about the history of Savannah, as well as a schoolroom with displays. Very informative and enjoyable.
