Did you know?


The question must be asked a thousand times a day in downtown Savannah by happy visitors and locals alike. Tabby- made of equal parts lime, water, sand, oyster shells, and ash – is beautiful building material dating back to the days when James Oglethorpe used it for structures around colonial Savannah. He was said to always admire this type of stucco due to its large pieces mixed into perfect ratio as well as having pale white coloration sometimes grayish shade which makes each piece unique.

Tabby can be used in the construction of lanes and sidewalks, walls, whole buildings, and, historically, fortifications. Oglethorpe became known for his tabby walls built between Georgia and the Spanish forces to the south in Florida.

Tabby is a type of beautiful, yet fragile building material that was widely used in the past. It can still be seen at places like Wormsloe Plantation and even older examples across Lowcountry locations such as Charleston or St Augustine. Excessive exposure to water and even vegetative overgrowth can wear away at it over time, which is why it was broadly replaced by the more modern versions of cement used today.
