A trio of historic neighborhoods in Savannah, Georgia rank among the most picturesque in the United States. Ardsley Park, Chatham Crescent, and Ardmore are well known for their unique layouts and varied architectural styles, as well as lush shrubbery and the moss-draped oaks that have become a trademark of Savannah's charm. The development of Ardsley Park and Chatham Crescent began around 1910 as the advent of the automobile allowed more Savannahians to move to the "suburbs." Neighboring Ardmore, to the south of Ardsley Park and Chatham Crescent, came later, during the 1920s. The entire area was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. For decades the neighborhoods have been home to some of Savannah's most prominent families. Former residents include media mogul Ted Turner and the University of Georgia bulldog mascot owned by Frank W. "Sonny" Seiler. Within these pages are photographs from private collections never before made available to the public-images of Savannahians at work and at play. Captivating scenes of days long ago reveal the history of a much-beloved community.
