Here is the Famous Bronze Statue: The Waving Girl, Flora Martus
(She lived on Elba Isle near Savannah, in the early 1900s. She, her brother and her father were the lighthouse keepers there.
Flora loved watching the ships pass back and forth, but the life of a lighthouse keeper is a lonely one. Her father comforted her with the idea that she would always be a light for others. For more that 60 years, Flora Martus happily waved to the passing ships, which her nearest neighbours.
It became a tradition for passing ships to honk their horns or blow their whistles at the girl and then she waving from the lighthouse. For Flora 70 birthday, Savannah honored its beloved waving girl by throwing a party for 3000 people. A bronze statue in her honor was erected on the south end of River Street, in 1971.
