This square is just a couple of blocks off River Street. It is devoted to a statue of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. The base of the statue gives a lot of his history and Trinity United Methodist Church, one of the oldest Methodist congregations, which came out of his visit to Savannah, is nearby.

We hung out in Reynolds Square after eating at the Olde Pink House. I love all the Savannah Squares, but this one is just so nice and relaxing. The huge oaks with massive limbs and Spanish Moss, the nice atmosphere, the benches where we can sit and watch the world walk by. I love it and will go back again!

The square was right across the street from our hotel, it was quite convenient and a great location to other squares and so many different areas of the city. We enjoyed the history, the benches to relax on, and the people watching.

One of Savannah's many historic squares, Reynolds Square is a good one to check out. This one doesn't feature a large monument, meaning people are passing through more than stopping here, providing a great spot to people watch while surrounded by history.

Laid out in 1734 as Lower New Square, it was renamed for John Reynolds, the governor of Georgia in the 1750s. His initial popularity faded fast so there is a tradition that the joyful celebration on his arrival was more than matched by the excitement in the crowd who celebrated his departure. The imposing sculpture in the middle of the... More
