Awesome square in downtown Savannah. This is one of our favorite spots during our recent visit. Wish all towns had places like this to visit.

One of the small square parks located so you can walk around the historic district, stop to relax for a few minutes, see & learn some history about the area then continue your walk.

This is one of the 22 lovely squares in the Savannah historic district. Named for President James Madison it features an impressive statue commemorating the heroism of colonial soldier Sergeant William Jasper. Be sure to read the informative historical plaques in this square.

We loved going here. We felt like time just stopped and everything was more relaxing. Savannah is a top choice for me after visiting several spots, this one included.
