Integrity and Condition Assessment
Savannah National Historic Landmark District
The National Park Service (NPS) recently completed a condition assessment of the Savannah National Historic Landmark (NHL) District. Following a comprehensive study, site visits, public meetings, and a public comment period, the NPS has determined that the overall condition of the district falls into the “threatened” condition category. The designation status of the district as a national historic landmark was not changed by this assessment. The National Park Service monitors the condition of National Historic Landmarks to ensure that they continue to possess the historic qualities for which they were designated. In the case of the Savannah District, those qualities include the Savannah Town Plan (or Oglethorpe Plan) and the collection of architecturally significant buildings built upon the plan.
