The Georgia Historical Society was founded by Richard D. Arnold, William Bacon Stevens, and Israel K. Tefft, all Savannah residents. It was chartered in 1839 by the Georgia General Assembly. The headquarters of the Georgia Historical Society is located in Savannah.
This is an artificial collection created by the Georgia Historical Society by compiling stereographs from various sources into a single collection. It is unknown when this collection was created, but most of the materials were processed during the 1980s. The stereographs are arranged by subject matter. Subjects include agriculture; animals; buildings; dwellings; street views; events; geographic locations; industry; military; monuments and memorials; occupations and employment; people; and transportation. Unless noted, these images are of people, places, and subjects in Savannah, Georgia.
This collection includes a folder of negatives; they are restricted from patron use.
