The squares in historic Savannah are quite pretty but also fairly similar and begin to blend together.

Oglethorpe Square, laid out in 1742, is, of course, named for the founder of Georgia, James Oglethorpe. Interestingly, the statue of Oglethorpe is in Chippewa Square.

It's a lovely square for a quick walkthrough or for a relaxing rest or picnic. There is plenty of people watching to be done and history to be absorbed. Take a guided tour if you want the details.

Saw this square at night on our ghost walk. 1 of 22 squares in the downtown area. Quite a historical place.
