Savanna is located along the banks of The Mississippi River and picturesque bluffs of Carroll County. Savanna is a part of the very active consolidated school district of West Carroll and is proud to support THE THUNDER WAY. We have community minded families, volunteer organizations, churches and local businesses. There are many reasons to choose the City of Savanna and Carroll County to become your new home. Let me share a few.
