HABS drawings for Remshart Row
REMSHART ROW within the 100 Block West Jones Street
These documentary drawings were made by the federal project Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) in the 1960s, as Preservation was getting a real foothold in Savannah. The full drawing set of the William Remshart Row, and many other Savannah buildings, can be found at: http://memory.loc.gov/
Thank you, Mr. Chenoweth, for the reminder.
A few photos taken at the time of HABS documentation, 1962, reveal the state of decay which characterized much of Savannah's architectural fabric, mid-century. And, in 2009, the state of renovation and rehabitation.
