Treasures from the Archives – Discovering
Savannah’s Municipal Archives
Proudly Sponsored by the Friends of Massie Heritage Center and the Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association
DATE: Tuesday, September 26th, 2017, 6:30 - 8 PM
WHAT: Fall 2017 Friends of Massie Historical and Architectural lecture series. The lecture will explore what happens when you dig deep into Savannah’s past and what we can learn from this research. Savannah has preserved a wide variety of artifacts from urban renewal, reclamation projects and through contributions. Be it a coin, postcard or even a Chinese burial stone – each item explores the life of our city in a previous time.
Have you wondered what happened to the artifacts uncovered after Hurricane Matthew? There will be show and tell to make these treasures come alive.

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Historic Preservation and a Master’s degree in Public History from Armstrong State University.
