The Victorian District is a neighborhood in Savannah Georgia. Part of the neighborhood borders on Forsyth Park. There are actually two parts to the Victorian District, East and West. Martin Luther King Boulevard is the western border and Habersham Street is the east.  Gwinnett Street is on the north and Anderson Street on the south. This area has some lovely Victorian homes, the name fits it perfectly. For the lover of gingerbread houses, this is the area in Savannah where you will want to look for your new home. The Victorian District is 50 blocks that covers a 160 acre area.  It has streets that are tree lined with lots of gardens. Some of the homes have been converted to multi-family or commercial use but the overall feel is very much a neighborhood one. Prices can run well over a million dollars in the area but condos and apartments can be found.

Catherine Ward House Inn  is located in one of the amazing Victorian homes in this neighborhood. The home dates from the 1880’s and offers all the modern amenities in a historic location. The house was a modern amalgamation when it was built combining the Low Country style with the high Italianate style that was popular. In its day, it had all the most modern conveniences including piped gas. Today, guests can stay here and enjoy the full Victorian District experience.

There are lots of places to eat and drink in the neighborhood. When you want to have a great cup of 100% organic fair trade coffee, The Sentient Bean has been the place to go for the last 10 years. It isn’t just coffee here either, there is breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner as well as entertainment.
