The center-point of the St. Ann's Garrison Historic District, this old barracks site is now used for horse racing. Visitors can still explore the site and see some of the old relics that have stayed behind from the soldiers.


The Savannah is more race track than historical attraction, but its history still remains. If visiting the nearby museum, you will learn the history of the Savannah and the central role it played in the garrison.
