Ellis Square 10 Jul 2013, 9:00 pmDecker Square was so-called in honor of Sir Matthew Decker , the director of the East India Company, a member of Parliament and one of the 21 Trustees who supported James Oglethorpe’s colonial venture in Georgia. Wait a minute—Decker Square?? The third Savannah Square was birthed Decker Ward in 1733. It is the second largest of the squares and was later renamed Ellis Square after Sir Henry Ellis. By his late twenties, adventurer Henry Ellis had studied law and explored British territories in North America looking for a Northwest Passage. By his mid-thirties he had been named Royal Governor of Georgia, one of his major accomplishments being the establishment of a peace treaty with neighboring Creek Indians.
The square’s location on Barnard Street bordered by Bryan and Congress Streets served as a commercial center for local farmers and slave traders. The original City Market was built in 1763 and subsequent markets followed thereafter until the 1950’s; thus, the area was also sometimes referred to as Marketplace Square. It was home to most of the first Jewish settlers in Savannah in 1733. They would be integral in the establishment of the Mickvah Israel congregation that remains today.
Bordered on the east by the ocean, Savannah eventually found itself running out of prime downtown property. In 1954 the Savannah Merchants Cooperative Parking Association leveled the market and built a much-needed four-story parking garage to serve downtown retail customers. The loss of Ellis Square led to the founding of The Historic Savannah Foundation, which now preserves historic city homes and buildings that might otherwise be destroyed. This story ends happily, though, since the 1.5-acre property became available again in 2004. A compromise was arrived at to satisfy the need for parking and historical preservation.
Underneath Ellis Square is an underground garage and above is a new park for public use and events. Five tall oaks were brought in to restore the traditional shade to the historic square. A new market houses restaurants, shops and studios that restore the hubbub of the old. The grass-roofed visitor’s center and 2-foot tall chess pieces are visual highlights, but the center fountain reminds visitors of the square’s rejuvenation as it shoots water ten feet high into Savannah skies. A bronze statue of Savannahian and songwriter-lyricist Johnny Mercer was erected to remind visitors of the importance of old sweet songs amongst new opportunities and progress.
Clean is Comfort 5 Jul 2013, 9:00 pm
One of the things that many people notice about
The Olde Savannah Inn is how clean it is. Cleanliness can be
easily overlooked in a b&b or hotel setting, but it will never
be in this inn. The reason comes down to our innkeeper
Kathleen. Kathleen spent years in the cleaning
industry. She learned how to reach the highest standards a
customer could have and she had brought that same level of
excellence to the inn. Kathleen says, "Clean is relaxing and
I want my guests to feel relaxed when they're
Kathleen's devotion to cleaning has been put to
the test. While running her cleaning company one of her
clients was the state of Massachusetts and so she would go into the
homes of people with different types of severe neurosis and
disorders. It was very difficult to clean these houses. Most
had given up on these people, but Kathleen knew she was improving
their lives by helping them and giving them a fresh clean
Kathleen experienced the opposite end of spectrum too working with a client that was adamant about the way her pillows were to be fluffed. It didn't matter though because Kathleen's dedication to pleasing her clients then and her guests now knows no bounds. Her guests now get all the perks of Kathleen's 13 years of cleaning experience. They know that when they walk into the inn; it will be clean and safe. Safe because guests will find rooms free of bacteria, allergens, and bed bugs. Rooms instead house antique furniture, the softest bedding, and charm.
- Develop a system. Week 1 may be baseboards. Week 2, lower casements. Create a system that works for you and stick with it.
- Follow a path. Start in one spot in the
room and work around. Moving all over leads to missed
- Don't procrastinate. Getting out of the routine will allow things to build up and make it harder to start the system over again.
