2014 Preserving the Historic Road Conference

Savannah, Georgia, "The Hostess City of the South," provides a beautiful backdrop to our next conference, Savannah 26 – 28, 2014. Upon founding Savannah in 1733 General James Oglethorpe organized the now famous squares as military parade grounds among the residences, businesses and churches of the capital city of the 13th Colony. Beyond Savannah, American Indian roads transformed into colonial trade routes, such as the King’s Road, and were later used during the Revolutionary and Civil wars. These same roads evolved into the highways of the modern era, providing the lifeline between growing industries and the bustling Port of Savannah. These same roads further enticed travelers to southern vacationlands via the Dixie Highway and the Atlantic Coastal Highway (US 17). So journey on down with your fellow road enthusiasts and enjoy some fine southern hospitality! 

The 2014 Preserving the Historic Road Conference, partnered with the National Scenic Byways Foundation, will provide a diverse and comprehensive conference program, which will include enlightening educational sessions, and informative mobile workshops to unique sites (featuring some great shrimp, grits and barbeque). The combination of these events will let you experience southern road culture, history and local issues that tie in to the national, and global, perspective of historic road identification and protection. 

We hope this year’s conference transports you through history through the stories that roads create, whether they surround city squares or traverse as national highways. Historic roads are connections through time and place. We thank you for traveling to Savannah to participate in lively discussions, share your insights and experiences. Our goal is to ensure you have a memorable experience, filled with southern hospitality. Take home new ideas and strategies to help in your continuing efforts to tell your stories and preserve historic roads in your states and communities.
