Savannah Antiques and Architecture Weekend

Savannah Antiques and Architecture Weekend is a fundraiser of the Women of St. John’s Church in collaboration with The National Society of The Colonial Dames in the State of Georgia, with proceeds from this event equally divided between the two historic houses:  the Green-Meldrim House and the Andrew Low House.  The proceeds that come to the Green-Meldrim House are used as the members of the Board of the Women of St. John’s Church decide according to the needs of the Green-Meldrim House.

Savannah Antiques and Architecture Weekend usually comes the first Friday and Saturday in March.  The 2019 Savannah Antiques and Architecture Weekend is Friday, March 1st, and Saturday, March 2nd, and will be the third annual Savannah Antiques and Architecture Weekend.
