Port Wentworth, like Savannah, was founded to increase commerce in the Colonies. What is now Port Wentworth was originally part of several Colonial Plantations including Mulberry Grove, where Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin in 1793. From affordable housing to prime commercial real estate, this community has what your business needs to succeed. Fourteen colleges and universities - including the Savannah campus of Georgia Tech and SCAD - produce nearly 5,000 graduates a year. With degrees in engineering, digital media, economics, and computer arts, they provide a pool of talented potential workers and residents. Today, the city’s proximity to the Georgia Ports Authority’s facilities, I-95 and I-16, the Savannah International Airport and major railroad lines continue to make it an ideal location for business.
