Spotted this one while inbound on my ship.

While on a road trip with Wolfling70, we enjoyed caching and benchmarking our way throughout Southern Georgia. As we made our way through Savannah, we observed the dome atop the beautiful Savannah City Hall building!

Cache Yoo and I are on a 3 day geocaching road trip this weekend. Even though the main purpose of our trip isn't to find benchmarks, we always look for them wherever we end up.

The City Hall Dome is as beautiful as ever!

Seen on a trip through the city.

Found it

We were in Savannah today on vacation and we were taking a walking tour of the river front and one of the stops on the tour was City Hall particularly to see the dome from the inside. We stepped in and went through security and were enjoying the view and the guard, must have been a slow morning, came over and started telling us all about city hall, the dome and the history of it in conjunction with Savannah. He was quite informative and we had a great visit. We should get such personal tours at all historic sites around the country.

Nice building. On our cruise the guide told us that $250,000 worth of gold was used for the dome, which was funded by private citizens.
