Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Savannah, Georgia was founded in 1733 by British General James Oglethorpe. The city was established as the first planned city in the United States, with a gridiron street layout surrounded by picturesque squares and parks. Throughout its history, Savannah has played a significant role in the American Revolution, serving as a key port for shipping goods and supplies to the colonies. During the Civil War, the city was the target of Union forces, leading to its capture in 1864. Savannah has also been a hub of economic activity, with industries such as cotton, lumber, and shipping driving its growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the city is known for its historic charm, cobblestone streets, and beautiful antebellum architecture. Tourism is a major industry in Savannah, with millions of visitors flocking to the city each year to explore its museums, historic landmarks, and vibrant arts scene. Savannah’s rich history and Southern hospitality continue to attract people from all over the world.
