The squares, one after another are the true joy of walking around Savannah. Beautiful historic homes surround the square. Massive oak trees, Spanish moss and flowers abound. You will be amazed how peaceful it is.
Each one of Savannah's numerous squares has its own beauty and character. These Squares are what draw me back for return visits. I love the majestic trees and hanging Spanish Moss and thoughtfully placed benches for pondering and drinking in the beauty!
DO NOT...(I said DO NOT) miss ANY one of these historic courts (this is one of many) when visiting Savannah. Recommend one of the bus tours. Drivers are VERY knowlegeable on every area. So much to see, plan on at least 3 days to soak...More

It was the site of the park bench upon which Forrest Gump sat in the beginning of the movie. The bench has been relocated to a Savannah museum to preserve it and reduce traffic accidents caused by people taking pictures from the street at the Square. The Square is also the one on which the now famous Mercer a House is situated.
These are two of the reasons Savannah has become a major travel destination. They have also attracted buyers to the Savannah Historic District and fueled its restoration.
Wow and AhHa !
