Vernonburg is a town in Chatham County, Georgia, about 10 miles south of downtown Savannah. It is located at a sharp curve along the Vernon River, a tidal creek. The population was 122 at the 2010 census. Vernonburg was first settled by German craftsmen in the mid-18th century (hence the German suffix -burg), and was incorporated in 1748. By the early 19th century, the town was becoming a summer community for wealthy Savannahians. Then as now, it was linked to downtown Savannah by White Bluff Road, the 19th-century extension of Bull Street. Today Vernonburg is an attractive residential village with large homes and beautiful landscaped gardens.

Vernonburg is part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area.
