A few words from our Sponsors


“This is our third year of sponsoring Historic Savannah Foundation’s annual gala. We are thrilled to be able to have two of our new Savannah dealerships involved this year, Alfa Romeo and Fiat. The work of HSF is so important to preserving what is special about Savannah, and we are glad to be able to continue to support such a great organization.”

Warner Peacock, President & CEO of Coastal States Automotive Group, parent company of Savannah Fiat and Savannah Alfa Romeo



“We are proud to serve as a major corporate sponsor of the HSF Gala for a third consecutive year. As fiduciary investment advisors for over 45 years, we understand the importance of stewardship of assets over the long-term and across generations. The values of HSF are so closely aligned with those of our firm that we wanted to support the organization and its mission in a substantial way.”

Malcolm Butler, President & CEO of The Fiduciary Group



“Partnering long-term with customers and industry leading manufacturers, Ashley’s Business Solutions is able to flourish and grow in the Savannah market. We, like HSF, understand that long-term strategic partnerships with community leaders and businesses are key to the preservation of Savannah.”

Ashley Johnson, Ashley’s Business Solutions



“Established in the 1950s and rooted in the strong tradition of service, value and commitment to patient care excellence, Chatham Orthopaedic Associates, P.A is proud to support the HSF and its mission of historic preservation. Savannahians are blessed to live in a city enriched with the treasures of our architectural past. HSF has led the way in advocating, educating and protecting our city’s most precious asset.”

Sharon Bromley, CEO of Chatham Orthopaedic Associates, PA



“We at Lifecycle Construction Services are proud to support HSF and its mission of preserving our built heritage. Not only does preserving and honoring our past ensure that it will be there for our children to enjoy and learn from; it is also the most effective way to increase sustainability. It is far more sustainable to preserve and repurpose existing structures and buildings than to expand the built environment unnecessarily.”

George Woods, Co-Founder and Vice President, Lifecycle Construction Services

Farewell to a Colleague and Friend

January 27th, 2016

http://www.myhsf.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Terri-Bio-Photo-small2.jpgHSF’s top-notch and much-loved Development Director, Terri O’Neil, will be leaving HSF in early February.  Terri has accepted an offer to become the Development Director at the Savannah Philharmonic.  This is a terrific opportunity for her, and we wish her all the best.  It is flattering that our excellent personnel are sought by other quality non-profits, and it says much about what Terri and HSF have achieved in the last five years.

Among other major accomplishments credited to her, Terri established the Preservation Festival, built a solid team within HSF’s Development Department, helped guide HSF through a Capital Campaign, assisted with fundraising for the National Preservation Conference, and set up a Planned Giving Program.  Her commitment to preservation and dedication to HSF showed in the energy and enthusiasm she poured into this organization’s events and programs.

Needless to say, Terri will be sorely missed.  The good news is, HSF is on solid financial ground and we have begun searching for a successor.  With key input from Frances Colón, our Special Events Coordinator, and Chassidy Malloy, our Membership and Volunteer Coordinator, HSF will move carefully but swiftly to fill the position of Development Director.

In the meantime, we encourage our members, donors and sponsors to wish Terri well with her new opportunity.

Environmental History Symposium


Coastal Nature, Coastal Culture: Environmental Histories of the Georgia Coast. A Symposium.

  • Why does the Georgia coast matter? How 5000 years of people and cultures influenced, and were shaped by, Georgia’s 100 mile coastline of barrier islands and lowcountry.
  • A first-of-its-kind symposium, building a much-needed bridge between the history of the American South and the booming field of environmental history.
  • How changing landscapes on Georgia’s coastal plain reflect the interaction of different visions and cultures with the natural environment.
  • Eleven leading writers and scholars in history or literature present original research on critical topics, revealing how the past has shaped the present and could affect the future.
  • Related visits to coastal historic and environmental sites.


Thursday, February 18 – Saturday, February 20, 2016
Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street, Savannah.
