On March 2, 2010 President Obama made his way down Whitaker Street, the very street our veranda overlooks!
President Obama was in Savannah visiting and touring Savannah Technical College for only a few hours, but many caught a glimpse of him during his short stay!
The President then surprised diners at Savannah's favorite Mrs.Wilkes Southern Restaurant, just a few blocks north of the inn. The word is Obama piled his plate high with southern classics, especially fried chicken!
After his lunch and just before 2pm, President Obama made his way down Whitaker Street back to the South Side of Savannah. The Innkeeper and staff all lined the veranda with waving hands and cheerful smiles! It was a great and exciting day for Savannah!
