Initiated a few years ago by Trustees’ Garden Club, the mission of the Forsyth Park Project is the completion of a Master Plan for the park and the nomination of the park as a National Historic Landmark.
Nominating the park as a National Historic Landmark is under consideration as a goal of the Forsyth Park Project.
National Historic Landmarks are buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects that have been determined by the Secretary of the Interior to be nationally significant in American history and culture.
Forsyth Park is one of the oldest municipal parks in the country and is historically significant on many levels.
The research and nomination process can take several years. Very few parks have Landmark status; achieving this designation for Forsyth Park will be recognition of its iconic importance to the City of Savannah, the State of Georgia and to the nation as a whole.
