Stop by the Ballastone Inn To See Their Christmas Decorations
In recognition of this small historic hotel’s significance in Savannah and Georgia history, Ballastone Inn has been awarded two commemorative plaques, one from the Historic Savannah Foundation and one from the National Trust. Historically, a prominent Savannah mansion since 1838.
The land where this Savannah luxury hotel is situated formed part of the southern boundary of the original settlement founded by General James E. Oglethorpe in the fall of 1733. It had been given by grant to Jeremiah Papot, a vinedresser, in August of that year. The land was eventually sold to George Anderson, a local merchant. His son Major George W. Anderson, who owned the Lebanon Plantation, a large property some 17 miles south of Savannah, inherited the home “now this historic hotel” upon his father’s death in 1874 and used it as a townhouse. Major Anderson was the commanding officer at Fort McAllister when it fell to General Sherman in 1864.
