Keeping Up With The Jones’s
We have all heard the saying " Keeping up with the Jones's," but have you ever wondered where it came from? Some historians believe it came from, Savannah, Georgia.
Jones Street in Savannah has housed the who's who of city, from city officials, to famous people, to the wealth. If you were someone you lived on Jones Street in Savannah.
Therefore people believe that is where the saying "keeping up with Jones's" comes from. I guess people wanted to keep up with people on Jones Street.
It is actually a very beautiful cobble stone street with beautiful homes and beautiful oak trees and Spanish moss, that shade the street. I can see why everyone wants to live on this street.
