Laid out in 1837, this square was designed to honor the legacy of President James Madison. The grove of stately oaks and intricate web of Spanish moss provide a secluded spot to reflect on the beauty of the Historic District of Savannah while sitting on one of its numerous benches. The Green-Meldrim House and St. John's Episcopal Church on its... More

This is another square to add to the list. Take out a map and try to go to all of them. It's a great way to walk the city. They all are beautiful.

A beautiful square to just sit in. The live oaks and Spanish moss are very atmospheric and there's stunning houses surrounding it

This is a peaceful Square. I enjoyed sitting on the bench and looking at the trees. Strikingly similar to the other squares.

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
