Built in 1886, the SAVANNAH COTTON EXCHANGE located at 100 East Bay Street, is a grand reminder of cotton's influence on the city.

Built of red brick with a terra cotta facade, copper finials and copings and iron window lintels, the building is one of the best examples of the Romantic Revival Period.

In the front of the Exchange building there is a statue of a griffin and a lovely fountain.

October, 2014

Established in 1733, SAVANNAH is the oldest city in the state of Georgia. A strategic port city, Savannah is today an industrial center and an important Atlantic seaport.

Millions of visitors who enjoy the city's historic architecture, visit Savannah every year. October is a great time of year to visit this charming "Old South" city. The weather was fantastic and crowds not too bad. Hans and I enjoyed strolling down East Bay Street where most of the sites are located. You can experience "River Walk" along the Savannah River, visit the Cotton Exchange, - be raptured by the beauty of the mighty oak trees just dripping with Spanish Moss - experience the historic sites - perhaps take a Trolley Tour.

Georgian's mild climate offers perfect conditions for growing cotton, which became the dominant commodity after the American Revolution, Its production under the plantation system and shipment through the Port of Savannah, helped the city's European immigrants to achieve wealth and prosperity
