Savannah was established in 1733 and was the first colonial and state capital of Georgia.
Today, Savannah's downtown area, the Savannah Historic District, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. The district encompasses the original town plan laid out in 1733 by Gen. James E. Oglethorpe, founder of the British colony of Georgia. Today Savannah retains much of this plan based on divisions also called wards, squares, and "trustee lots.". Most of the original squares remain and are surrounded by fine examples of buildings in the Georgian, Greek Revival, and Gothic styles.
