Kehoe Iron Works at Trustees' Garden
660 E.Broughton Street
Savannah, GA 31401
Historic Savannah is easily one of the most beautiful urban environments in the country. The Kehoe Ironworks – a marvelously renovated 19th century industrial building – is at the northeast edge of the historic district, but we hope people will take up accommodation and spend free time in the heart of the historic district, just a short walk from the Ironworks. If you look at a map, the historic district is where all the green squares are: between the Savannah River in the north and Forsyth Park in the south, and between Montgomery Street on the west and Broad Street in the east. You’ll easily find lots of accommodation to choose from in this area, from hotels to bed and breakfasts to Airbnbs. We encourage you to make the most of the opportunity to live for a few days in this extraordinarily beautiful place.
By Air: The nearest airport is the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV), an easy twenty-minute Uber (~$20) from downtown. Once downtown a car is an unnecessary nuisance so we advise against renting one.
By Car: If you are arriving by car, downtown Savannah is conveniently ten miles off the I-95 Interstate that runs down the eastern coast of the US. Savannah has a metropolitan population of just under 400,000 but only a small part of that is found in the downtown area. The downtown is easily drivable and not too congested; however, the rugged cobblestone streets, tour buggies and horses, and one-way roads are encouragement to settle into a parking spot and walk—both a great pleasure and the best way to discover the city.
With a little luck you’ll experience the best of the glorious southern spring: average temperatures in the 70s, sometimes warmer, and cooler evenings, with a chance of rain.
Given the popularity and limited space of our event, we will be checking name badges and ask you make them an extension of your wardrobe for your time with us. You will receive your badge during on-site registration at the Kehoe Ironworks. Should you forget your badge, we will have a list and ask for ID, but we want to make the Symposium as welcoming and relaxed as possible, so please do wear the badge as part of your daily attire.
Recording any part of the Symposium without permission is prohibited; but you are free to share your own experience with others online or elsewhere as you wish.
We encourage you to walk to the event, if able, to maximize your time soaking in the beauty of Savannah in April. For those who choose to ride, it is easiest to take an Uber and ask them to drop you off near the Pirate’s House (20 E. Broad St), and access the Iron Works through the gate behind the parking lot. If you choose to drive your own car, there is some limited parking in the area.
You can find ATMs and banks all around downtown Savannah, particularly in the more central areas. Nearly all shops in the area take debit or credit cards. Digital currencies and contactless payments are less common.
If you are coming from abroad, you can purchase a SIM card when you arrive.
Dial 911 from any telephone. This is the standard emergency-service line across the United States.
