This square is located at Bull Street~~West Harris and West Charlton. It has a nice bronze monument of Sgt. Jasper holding a flag. Yes the park was actually named after President Madison but the statue is not of him:) This would be a great trivia quiz to name the squares and the actual statues or monuments standing in them:) This...

William Jasper is featured in a dramatic pose in the center of Madison Square. It is very impressive and is a photo opportunity from various angles. Gen Sherman used the Green Meldrim House as his headquarters. the Tea Room is a favorite place for lunch. easy parking around the area.

Sorting out the squares in Savannah can be confusing for first timers; the square is named after President Madison, but the statue isf of William Jasper, a Revolutionary War hero who died during the Seige of Savannah after rescuing his fallen regimental flag. The Green Meldrim House (General Sherman's headquarters) is located nearby. Another great place to rest and people... More

Madison Square is one of my favorite squares. Although all of the squares are beautiful, this one is also surrounded by great businesses and a remarkable church. The Gryphon Tea room serves a full tea menu in addition to their regular food menu. It is a favorite spot that my daughter and I go to for tea. SCAD's gift shop... More

Named after the fourth US President, James Madison (not NY’s Madison Square Garden), this “Square” is what Southerners call a park. Surrounding it are some of the most important and interesting buildings in the city, including St. John’s Church and SCAD. Laid out in 1837, Madison Square commemorates Revolutionary War Savannah native, Sergeant William Jasper. His deeds date back to... More

We visited most of Savannah's 23 squares during our trip to Savannah. They are all beautiful and this is no exception. This is another example of the planning that went into this beautiful southern city.
