Nice place to rest and "set a spell!" Bring your camera! The history of all of the squares is fascinating! Read up a little before you go, so you will enjoy and appreciate them a little bit more!

I remember this Square so well from our Segway tour because of the curved staircase at the front door of one of the homes.

What a simple quiet place. It was another favorite because of it's lack of visitors ans beautiful homes surrounding it. The housed are so gorgeous, what a trip back into such stately times.

We were lucky enough to take a tour of the Kehoe House Inn, which is located on Columbia Square. Gorgeous area, with the architecture and the Davenport House on one side too. Great place to relax and take photos too.

Laid out in 1799, this square is named for the Columbia, the personification of the newly formed United States. The rustic fountain is beautifully decorated in a natural motif of vines and flowers and was built to honor Noble Jones, a founder of the colony. At the intersection of Habersham and East President Streets with the prominent and beautiful Davenport... More

I love Columbia Square, it is one of my favorites. What I would do to be able to live across the street from it! I adore fountains and water features and could sit near this one for hours. This square is small and peaceful and the burnished fountain is very charming.

This square is small but is shaded with lovely trees and has a fountain. All the squares are worth visiting just to enjoy the loveliness of the individual squares. Amazing how these were placed and thought out so long ago. This one was designed in 1799, WOW!
