Some of Savannah's Strange Landmarks

After leaving the Savannah Humane Society, we went looking for some of the Savannah Area's Strange Landmarks. We found a few.

At 14 E. 73rd St. in Savannah we found this mailbox painted like the moon. It was standing in front of...

this gas storage tank painted like the world globe.

Built in 1955 by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Company this structure, known as a Hortonsphere, has a volume capacity of 113,100 cubic feet.

The globe and the property adjacent are currently owned by the Savannah Mortgage Company but appear to be for sale as of this date. What a cool landmark to own!

This Great Dane Statue symbolizes the strength, endurance and dependability of the trailers of Great Dane Trailers at 602 E. Lathrop in Savannah.

After measuring the Dane, Marlon determines there would be no room for him as a new pet in the motorhome.

This bridge is located near Great Dane Trailers.

Sergeant William Jasper, along with Sergeant John Newton rescued a group of American soldiers from the British military at this site in 1779.

For this heroic act Jasper Springs, pictured below, was named for him...just don't drink the water!

Next we located this young lady at Keller's Flea Market at 5901 Ogeechee Road in Savannah.


Luckily for her, she loves fleas.

Marlon was craving milk, so he thought he'd give it a try.

Doug prepares to fight a fire.

If you're hunting for this trunk-toting couple, go to Papa Joe's Fireworks on US17, just off I-95 at exit 5 in Hardeeville, South Carolina.
