Welcome to our new site! Bare with us as we continue to grow its contents with features of Sandfly businesses, events, people and the community altogether!
Sandfly is a thriving, bustling lowcountry community in Savannah, Georgia. Its dedicated business owners and their loyal patrons create a sense of fellowship and friendship, and we are all lucky to have this wonderful, little “unincorporated” area of Chatham County to call home.
“Established by African Americans in the nineteenth century, Sandfly is centered around the intersection of Montgomery Crossroad and Skidaway road. Many families in this community trace their ancestry to former slaves from nearby Wormsloe Plantation, bought land as free persons, and established homes and churches. After 1870 Central Avenue became the main route for the Industrial Streetcar System, making Sandfly a crossroads between the city of Savannah and Wormsloe Plantation, Bethesda Home for Boys, Isle of Hope, and Pinpoint. Sandfly continues to thrive as a historic African-American community.”
