Glorious History

This is a park to read all of the plaques and memorials. They tell the story of not just Savannah, but of America. Landscaping is tremendous.

On the west side of the square is the beautiful gothic-style home of Charles Greene, most well-known for being General Sherman's headquarters during the Civil War. On the north west side is the Sorrel-Weed home, a combination of Greek Revival with a touch of... More

Each square so different, they are a great tour if you review the history and mapping of them. This square has some great surrounding stops as well bordering it.

The Green-Meldrim House and St. John's Episcopal Church on its... More

This is another square to add to the list. Take out a map and try to go to all of them. It's a great way to walk the city. They all are beautiful.

A beautiful square to just sit in. The live oaks and Spanish moss are very atmospheric and there's stunning houses surrounding it
