In honor of Preservation Month, we celebrate Savannah College of Art and Design's Ivy Hall. On May 21, 1917, the Great Fire of Atlanta spared one of the South’s rare examples of Queen Anne-style architecture, the Edward C. Peters House, or Ivy Hall after the Peters family symbol.

In 2000, as The Mansion Restaurant, Ivy Hall barely survived another devastating blaze.

Last night, he debuted his work in Atlanta at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
