Discovering Savannah’s Black History, Culture and Heritage

January 8th, 2012 by Dresser Palmer House

Black Heritage TourAfter 16 years in Savannah I thought I had a good grasp on the history of our fair city.  Then I took the Day Clean Journeys’ African American History Tour and learned that I only have a pinkie grasp of Savannah’s Black History.  Four inns of Savannah have decided to collaboratively create a package that will highlight some of the best but lesser known historical sites of our city’s black history, culture and heritage.

While I was on the African American History Tour, I was amazed to learn how many “firsts” occurred in Savannah.  Let’s start with First African Baptist Church, built in 1861, this church was the first African-American Baptist Church in North America and served as part of the Underground Railroad.  Not to be outdone by First Bryan Baptist Church,  the oldest continuous African-American Baptist Church in the United States.  Then we have, West Broad Street School, 89 years the Scarbrough House spent as the first city-supported school for black students in Savannah.  And finally, the McKane Hospital and Nursing School was the site of the first hospital in Savannah to train African-American doctors and nurses.

There is much to learn, so many places to explore, and so little time but we believe we have packaged the best of the best, Savannah’s Black History and the Civil Rights Movement. Join the thousands of visitors from around the world who have embraced the story of Savannah’s black history, culture and heritage.  The Dresser Palmer House, an Historic Inn is proud to offer this Black Heritage Tour package.

PACKAGE HIGHLIGHTS:

1. Three days and two nights in one of our selected queen rooms with check-in on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday in January or February 2012.

2. Day Clean Journeys African American History Tour for Two, including admission to select venues

3. Secret Map of Soul Food Destinations and specific must see Black History/Heritage Sites
