Hello again, Savannah! Important update: You all, as readers, have made the Savannah Daily so successful that it is my honor to announce the next stage of the newsletter. Patch is looking for a local writer and entrepreneur to take the helm of the Savannah Daily. Although I have loved getting to know this community, we want to pass the torch to someone truly local to write about Savannah long term. So if you’re interested in earning extra income while making this newsletter a more valuable resource for your neighbors, learn more and apply here.


First, today’s weather:

A dangerous morning t-storm. High: 67 Low: 50.

Here are the top three stories in Savannah today:

  1. A historic Savannah school building on 38th Street that has been vacant since 2014 is getting a new purpose: residential housing. The former site of St. Paul’s Academy for Boys was originally built in 1900, and now its 122-year-old classrooms will be converted into 27 apartment units. Developers stated they hope to be completed with the $3 million renovations by Fall 2022. (WTOC)
  2. After last week’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, the Savannah Police Department has announced the results of its holiday operations. Over the four-day period of city festivities, the SPD made just 17 arrests in the operation zone and another 17 DUI arrests. “The majority of the visitors were well behaved and enjoyed themselves without excessive over-indulgence or illegal activity,” said Chief Roy Minter. “We hope to continue to see this trend with future crowds.” (Press Release Desk)
  3. Music lovers, get excited: the 2022 Savannah Music Festival starts today, Mar. 24! Now through Apr. 9, you can catch great live performances at venues across the city. This year’s three-week live music series is even more exciting because it will be held in person for the first time since 2019. See the full lineup at savannahmusicfestival.org. (WTOC)
