Savannah

Savannah is on State Highway 43 thirteen miles northeast of Jefferson in northeastern Marion County. The Savannah school had thirty White pupils and one teacher in 1899. In 1938 the community had a one-room schoolhouse that accommodated fourteen White elementary students. The school was described that year as being in somewhat dilapidated condition and located on a remote sandy road at least five miles from the nearest store. It had been consolidated with the Jefferson schools by 1955. In 1962 Savannah consisted of a church and several scattered dwellings. The 1983 county highway map showed the church at the townsite.
