The Independent Presbyterian Church on Bull Street is probably one of most photographed sites in Savannah. The spire of this grand old church can be seen for blocks and acts as a handy landmark to use when you get lost in the historic district. This church is just one of many in the historic district within walking distance of the hotels and bed and breakfast inns.
Several of these churches are located on Bull Street: First Baptist, Ascension Lutheran, Episcopal/Anglican Christ Church and the Independent Presbyterian. On Gordon Street, you’ll find: Catholic Church of St. Benedict the Moor and Congregation Mickve Israel. On Harris Street there is The Unitarian Universalist Church and the Catholic Church of St. John the Baptist on Harris.
Other churches in walking distance include: St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church on Anderson, First African Baptist Church on Montgomery, Second African Baptist Church on Houston, Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church on Abercorn, Trinity United Methodist Church on President Street, St. John’s Episcopal Church on Macon and the First Congregational Church on Habersham.
This church was established early in our country’s history, in 1755. The landmark building shown to the left, completed in 1829, was the church’s third home, and the one that has endured the centuries.
Today it stands as a testament to the city’s and the church’s respect for their history, and a landmark on Bull Street with it’s distinctive clocktower and steeple reaching towards the heavens.
