Courthouse in Savannah, Georgia was built on the site where John Wesley, founder of Methodism, preached in 1736 and 1737 in a courthouse erected by James Oglethorpe, founder of the colony of Georgia. Designed in the Second Renaissance Revival style, the original portion of the building is constructed entirely of white Georgia marble, and features the typical Italianate tripartite facade divisions characteristic of the style. The richly varied fenestration is one of the most prominent characteristics of the building. Various forms are skillfully used, resulting in distinct yet unified facade treatments.
