Skidaway Island State Park and Bonaventure Cemetery Savannah GA
In this video we stay at skidaway island state park in Savannah Georgia. Skidaway Island state park is about 20 minute drive to the old downtown district of Savannah. Great State park with very large sites! We loved it and plan on making this our regular campground when visiting Savannah in the future.
We had a great surprise visitor Christina join us for NYE and we showed her around the Bonaventure Cememtery on New Years Day as she's been to Savannah many many times but had never seen the Bonaventure cemetery before. We showed her some of the highlights like Gracie Watson grave along with the Johnny Mercer grave site. Showed her where they did some of the filming of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil as well.
We discovered a couple great new places to have a meal. First was Moon River Brewing Co. We had lunch on New Years day there. Another was Blowin Smoke for some great great BBQ. and J Christophers for an absolutely amazing breakfast! HIGHLY recommend!

Greenwich At Bonaventure Cemetery-Savannah GA's Own Biltmore House-Forgotten No Longer
Did you know that Savannah, Georgia, once had its own Biltmore House? Few people who visit Bonaventure Cemetery do.
We hope that this video will serve as an introduction to the grounds and gardens of Greenwich and as a revival of the memory of the grandeur that once existed in Savannah.
It is possible to visit Bonaventure today and overlook the few remnants of the opulent estate that once stood nearby. The man who built this beautiful mansion, Spencer P. Shotter, a successful businessman, who was a part of of the New York City social scene with the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and Carnegies. He held a worldwide monopoly in the naval stores industry circa 1900, yet is completely unknown to the many tour groups and visitors navigating Bonaventure Cemetery, even though they pass directly by the Shotter family gravesite there. There are many stories in Bonaventure to be told other than the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil lore and tales of Johnny Mercer.
The massive three story, 40 room mansion, was adorned with a double colonnade of 26 columns on three of its sides. Its grand hall inside had 18 columns and was exquisitely decorated. The home’s interior and beautifully landscaped grounds held priceless, ancient works of art and statuary. Two of Savannah’s most prominent families exchanged ownership of Greenwich before a massive fire completely destroyed the mansion in 1923. One young child, who survived the fire by jumping from a second story window, is still with us today. Time and the unceremonious disposal of the ruins have allowed the Shotters and Greenwich to fade from memory.
In our research, we were able to acquire new photographs for our collection to complement our original hand colored postcards from the 1920s, including a panoramic photo showing the large greenhouse that was once a part of the grounds and copies of the original architectural plans of the mansion. Not always the best quality but all that remains.
The Gilded Age in Savannah ended amidst the ashes of Greenwich. We hope you’ll help us bring back to life the memory of this lost treasure and that you enjoy our film. Piano by Sam Hayman. Visit us at eArtFilm.com or at greenwichatbonaventure.com

Bonaventure Cemetery & Bootlegging
During The Prohibition Era there were 4 bootlegging families in Savannah of noteworthiness called The Big 4 by locals and all 4 families are buried in Bonaventure Cemetery. Its very rare to encounter a rusting moonshine still inside of Savannah proper but that's one of the beautiful things inside of Skidaway Island State Park just down the river from Bonaventure Cemetery itself. Shannon Scott takes some time to highlight some details and show viewers the moonshine still!
