The delightful 50-block Victorian District is situated just south of the Historic District, and bounded by Martin Luther King Boulevard and East Broad Street, Gwinnett and Anderson Streets. It is a must see for anyone interested in Victorian architecture. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, this area represented the first suburb of Savannah as the city spread out in the late 1800s. Largely residential, the neighborhood features examples of many architectural styles, and features some of the finest examples of post-Civil War architecture in the Deep South. The predominant style is Victorian, and many of the two-story homes are wood frame with whimsical gingerbread trim, stained-glass windows, and unique architectural details.
