New Vernonburg Listings: A Look into this Historic Savannah District

Celia Dunn SIR currently has two magnificent listings in the Savannah neighborhood of Vernonburg! Vernonburg is a historic small coastal town, 10 miles away from downtown Savannah. The city has both residential communities and preserved archaeological developments from its founding days. Colonial Vernonburg was situated along the main street called Rockwell Avenue on very small lots. By the early 19th century, these smaller lots were left for larger sites closer to the bluffs, which left the original archaeological developments behind. The current historic houses in Vernonburg were built between 1840-1940 using primarily brick or stucco in construction. Vernonburg expanded in the 18th century when German craftsmen settled the area and later became a vacation destination for wealthy Savannah residents. Today, Vernonberg is an attractive residential area with large homes and extensive landscaping Let's take...
