Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association



Funds raised by the Holiday Tour of Homes as well as events like the Artists & Artisans’ Tour support downtown Savannah’s Landmark Historic District in a number of ways.

DNA’s Mission is to enhance the quality of life in the Historic Landmark District, protect Savannah’s unique downtown environment, and advocate public policies; which support these objectives. We protect the Landmark District’s architectural heritage, encourage restoration & beautification, and support local organizations that enhance the community through aid to Savannah’s citizens, education, safety, music, and children’s activities. Tour proceeds are used for projects and community organizations that support our mission.
