It’s been about a year since the Kennedy Pharmacy reopened as a meeting and reception space for the Historic Savannah Foundation.  In addition, the upstairs is a rented apartment.  The restoration was spearheaded by preservationist Jim Abraham.  Jim is a dear friend and I would occasionally walk over to check out the progress that he and his team of students had achieved.  It’s a great place, with plenty of stories to tell.

The main floor still has original marble aisle and wooden floors.  Light fixtures are electric but made to look like gas lamps.
