Buildings and Grounds
The present St. John’s Church in Savannah was designed in a Gothic Revival style by Calvin Otis of Buffalo, New York. It was consecrated on May 7, 1853.
The west annex (1881) now houses Choir Rooms (3rd floor), Church Office (2nd floor) and a Chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary (ground floor).
The Green-Meldrim House was purchased in 1943 for use as Parish House and Rectory. A Church School building erected in the early 1950’s was renovated and renamed Cranmer Hall in 2004. St. John’s is also noted for its Carillon (first installed in 1854), Pipe-organ (Wicks, 1982); Reredos (1924); and Stained-Glass Windows (late 19th c.).
