Remembering Black Savannah's West Broad Street Corridor
During recent decades, Savannah has become internationally known for its revitalized historic district.

North of Interstate 16, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard (formerly West Broad Street) has become a popular destination for infill hotel developments. In addition, the corridor is anchored by the historic former Central of Georgia Railroad terminal complex which now occupied by the Savannah Visitors Center, several museums and the Savannah College of Art and Design.
