Boo Business 👻📱


Bonaventure Cemetary Entrance

Enjoy accessible tours of Savannah’s famous cemeteries using just your phone

Bonaventure Cemetery is the one that comes to mind for many when talking about our city’s historic cemeteries. Not everyone has the time to research the stories behind the people buried there. Fortunately, there are some affordable and even free ways to learn about the city’s history.

The Bonaventure Historical Society offers free walking tours one weekend a month

  • July’s dates are the 9th and 10th
  • These tours are led by a member of the historic society and are completely free.
  • An app is also available for those who don’t have the time to take the tour.  It’s $4.99 in the Google Play and Apple App stores.
Laurel Grove Cemetary Entrance

Learn the history of Laurel Grove North and South cemeteries via your phone

  • In May, Georgia Southern University announced that a graduate student named Mark O’Dell had put together free self-guided tours of both of Savannah’s historic graveyards
  • Benevolent Burials includes highlighted maps, guided narration, videos, photos, and written narration
  • A fascinating look into Savannah’s untold and underrepresented histories

Around Town


Business

  • German logistics company DHL has leased 516,800 square feet of industrial space within Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub (SGIH) for its new “import facility.” (REBusinessOnline) Read more. 🚚

Art

  • Becca Sipper creates beautiful paintings and ceramic art. She strives to create beauty and harmony in both her work and personal life and hopes those two elements translate to her art. Having her art on display and for sale at local galleries around Savannah brings her joy, as she feels a “family aspect” being surrounded by other local artists and customers. (WSAV) 🎨

Music

  • Singer-songwriter Eric Britt brings back Homegrown Summer Jam and another Hazel Virtue reunion. Savannah has a tight-knit community of folk and Americana artists, so it is always a cause for celebration when they all get on one stage together. Last year’s all-star event was so successful that organizers are bringing back many of the performers from previous years. Check out the lineup for Homegrown Summer Jam – Part 2 at Victory North Savannah, 2603 Whitaker Street. (SavannahNow) 🎵

Sports

  • Gage Voorhees living ‘dream’ with Savannah Bananas. Voorhees, a rising senior pitcher at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla., is playing in front of 4,000 fans every night at Historic Grayson Stadium, where Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig and Hank Aaron took the field.

    Voorhees hopes to continue to pitch well for the Bananas and enjoy the spectacle at home games, where the team brings out UFC welterweight champion Jorge Masvidal as part of the ceremonial pregame manager weigh-in. (Journal-News) Read more. ⚾⚾

Books to children

  • In partnership with the Summer Food Programs provided by the public school systems in Bryan, Effingham, and Liberty counties, United Way of the Coastal Empire is distributing books to children throughout the summer as part of the Read United initiative. Read more. (SavannahBusinessJournal) 📖

The use of recycled glass has significant economic and environmental benefits. Using recycled glass decreases energy use during the manufacturing process and conserves resources. Additionally, the insulation continues to provide energy savings in the built environment for the life of the product. Now that is circularity!
