Another cute square

We walked through it a few times last weekend and thought it was really cute and quaint. Nice fountain in the center and a very peaceful quiet place to relax.

Loved all the squares, and like all the others, am so pleased that they are all used b the community. A lovely park to relax, quiet and relaxing and so close not only to the Kehoe (where I stayed) and the Davenport houses but not too far from most city hotels. Like most city squares, convenient for an easy walk.

What a simple quiet place. It was another favorite because of it's lack of visitors ans beautiful homes surrounding it. Laid out in 1799. The main central point of the is square is the rustic fountain which is beautifully decorated in vines and flowers and was built to honor Noble Jones, a founder of the colony.

This square is ground zero of the revitalization of the historic district as the Davenport House was threatened with demolition and citizens came together to save it. The main feature of the square is an historic fountain.

A nice peaceful square to sit on a bench and have lunch. It is shady so it is cool on a hot day. Another nice stop in savannah. N

Savannah must have the most little squares in one city, each one has its own story and are all so different visit them all to get a good sense of local history

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. Our guide told us some of the history of the homes and that they were thought to be haunted, they were falling apart, and how a group of ladies in the 1950's got together to save... More

In the middle of the square is the Wormsloe Fountain, in honor of Wormsloe Plantation. an early plantation, off Skidaway Rd. On the western side is the stunning Queen Anne Victorian home built for William Kehoe, who owned an iron foundry in... More
