Port Wentworth, Georgia
Port Wentworth was named for Lady Wentworth of England. It is steeped in tradition, environment and resources. Founded in 1733 and incorporated in 1957, its history arises out of the native Indian tribes and first settlers of the Trust Colony of Georgia. From this background came plantations that extended out from the Savannah River and provided the foundation for the future development of the industrial complex that is now the city and its environs.
Port Wentworth is a quaint, southern town that offers a view of Georgia's past and present. We invite you to discover this city's rich history and be part of its bright future.

Savannah is the largest city in, and the county seat of, Chatham County. Savannah was established in 1733 and was the first colonial and state capital of Georgia.
Savannah attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city's architecture and historic buildings: the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South's first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third-oldest synagogue in America), and the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in America).
Today, Savannah's downtown area is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States (designated by the U.S. government in 1966).
