The Gould Cottage: Pre-K3 – 7th
The historic Gould Cottage houses our PreK-8th grade students. Purchasing and renovating The Gould Cottage as Habersham’s new home in the Fall of 2013 was a significant day for Habersham, as well as, for the city of Savannah. The opportunity to restore a landmark like The Gould Cottage and return it to its traditional roots as a building for children was truly remarkable.
Further, as a Classical school with disciplines in Latin, the Great Books, and a thorough study of Western Civilization, the architectural style of the building mimics the culture of our school.
The cottage has a rich history, dating to the early 1930s when millionaire Edwin “Jay” Gould of New York City and his Gould Foundation for Children donated the land to the Savannah Female Orphan Asylum for a children’s nursery. Many Savannah natives have a fond attachment to the site and remember its long history as a home for boys and girls.
Habersham Hall: 8th – 12th
Originally built in 1887, this distinct stucco Moorish-Revival style building sits in the Landmark Historic District of Savannah, allowing our students and faculty to engage in the beauty, history, and richness of Savannah’s downtown landscape. In addition to the usual indoor classrooms, students also enjoy outdoor classroom settings in our expansive courtyard, neighboring coffee shops, or adjacent grassy knoll (old dueling grounds) and historic Colonial Cemetery.
