We enjoyed walking through Madison square every day heading to the waterfront. This square also has a statue dominating its center as do the other small parks surrounding it.

This square, named after James Madison, does have a statue situated on it. The centrally-located statue (1888) is very nice and historically interesting. The statue honors the heroism of a Revolutionary War soldier, killed (1779) not too far from the square.

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 north west side is the Sorrel-Weed home, a combination of Greek Revival with a touch of... More
