Oglethorpe Square

We enjoyed our time in Oglethorpe Square and what it represents. Oglethorpe started the colony of Georgia and the experiment continues some 400 years later.

A wonderful place to sit and relax after visiting either the cathedral, Davenport house museum or other nearby attractions. These are all over the historic district in Savannah and make a visit really a special treat. Wonderful trees. Benches to sit on. Lots of people watching.

Like all the squares in Savannah they all tell a story or recognise some significant person in making Savannah what it was and still maintains today.You can do this as you walk the old town.Admire the old oak trees.

Take a second breath from your walk in the Historic District and enjoy a special view. First is the imposing front facade of the Owens/Thomas House, possibly the finest example of English Regency Architecture in the US. Built between 1816 and 1819 and designed by the English Architect William Jay, it had indoor plumbing 14 years before the White House.... More

Daughters Girl Scout Troop stopped here while visiting the Girl Scouts Birthplace. They had to take a break from all the walking and just lay in the grass and pose for a few more pictures. lol Love the square and the fountain and all the flowers. Really hot in the summer but it is the south.

Another pleasing spot with beautiful surroundings and tourists groups traveling around the outskirts. It still remains a great historical and pleasant stop, each square not to disappoint.
