Historic Savannah Foundation’s new lecture series, “People, Places and Stories that Define Savannah,” will feature lectures covering a wide range of speakers and topics. Each lecturer will give a presentation on a subject that falls within the realm of his or her expertise followed by a question-and-answer session.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 | 6:00 PM
For our September lecture, Greg Jacobs with Landmark Preservation will be presenting “A Retrospective of 25 Years of Preservation Work in Savannah,” and he will be highlighting some of his most notable projects. The lecture will begin at 6:00 and will be virtual only.
Prior to earning a degree in Historic Preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1997, Greg Jacobs began his preservation career by starting Renaissance Restorations, LLC, a company focused on the rehabilitation of condemned buildings in Savannah’s various historic districts. Following graduation, he went on to rehabilitate dozens of historic commercial and residential structures. His efforts were later broadened to pioneer the redevelopment of an entire neighborhood in Savannah, now commonly referred to as the Starland District. Throughout the course of Greg’s career, he has restored and conserved countless historic structures. He possesses vast expertise in the assessment of historic structures, and the development of compatible, historically appropriate means and methods. Furthermore, he has been instrumental in the hands-on conservation of a wide array of historic structures and their materials.
