of Savannah, Georgia

Organized on July 26, 1837

Home Page












Conditions arising from the influx of new German immigrants led to the organization of the German Friendly Society of Savannah on July 26, 1837.  Immigrants coming to this country, handicapped for a time by language, dissociated from relatives and family friends, were in need of some assurance that in time of illness or need they would have friends and financial support.  Friendship was not reserved for times of ill fortune alone.  The promotion of social good feeling and fellowship came to be and has continued to be one of the fundamental objectives and attainments of the organization.
