Savannah’s old Greyhound terminal may become history

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) – Savannah’s old Atlantic Greyhound Bus Terminal – now known as The Grey restaurant – could soon be on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Savannah Morning News reports a release by the U.S. Department of the Interior last week said the building has been nominated for the designation because of its architecture and role in transportation during its “period of significance,” which is listed from 1938 to 1965.

The terminal was the hub of city bus traffic for the Savannah community for nearly 30 years. When the Atlantic Greyhound terminal first opened in 1938, the station handled more than 75 arrivals and departures a day to any destination in the country.

A professional review board will consider each property proposed for listing and make a recommendation on its eligibility.
