SAVANNAH, GA – March 8, 2022 – In honor of Women’s History Month, Historic Savannah Foundation will host a discussion panel, “Women in Preservation,” Thursday, March 24 as part of its ongoing “People, Places and Stories that Define Savannah” lecture series. The panel will take place at HSF headquarters, located at 321 E. York St., Savannah. The discussion will begin at 6 p.m. with a pre-lecture gathering at 5:30 p.m. to socialize and enjoy a glass of wine.  

The discussion will feature three of Savannah’s most respected women in preservation: Briana Grosicki with Ethos Preservation, Ellie Isaacs with Landmark Preservation Consulting, and Sarah Ward with Ward Architecture + Preservation. 

“Historic Savannah Foundation was started over 60 years ago by a group of seven incredibly determined women, so it’s very fitting that we commemorate Women’s History Month by hosting a panel discussion featuring three of the field’s most respected and renowned female preservationists,” HSF Education and Research Associate Kimberly Newbold said. “We are all excited to honor the contributions women have made to the preservation of our beautiful city and to hear about the experiences our accomplished panelists will share with us.”

This event is open to the public, however space is limited to 25 guests, so reservations are recommended. Attendance is free for HSF members and $10 for non-members. Both members and non-members may RSVP for this event by visiting HSF’s website, or by contacting Kimberly Newbold at or at 912-483-7294.
