Dating back to the early 1700s, Trustees' Garden is an important part of the story of Savannah, Georgia and its historic district. From its earliest use as an experimental garden, to having been multiple forts, then to the Kehoe Ironworks, and today as a series of multi-use venues catering to the arts, cultural, science, and wellness events. These venues also can be utilized for private functions such as weddings, corporate events, and trade shows to name but a few.
“At Trustees' Garden we have created a very popular gathering place where people can mingle daily with artisans, philosophers, scientists, writers, researchers and others from different disciplines and walks of life.
We want to encourage healthy lifestyles by promoting exercise, eating healthy foods and stimulating conversation with very limited car/truck traffic and parking. We want Trustees’ Garden to be a safe and comfortable place for quiet contemplation and other activities.
Trustee’s Garden provides spaces for children to play, learn, and do fun things with their families. Our goal is to make sure that Trustees’ Garden is financially, socially and environmentally sustainable so it will last for generations. “
