This is one of the four original squares laid out by James Oglethorpe in 1733. It is named for the Telfair family. Located by the Telfair Institute and with an adjacent stop on the free DOT bus route. Lovely shaded park with nice surroundings.

The Savannah Squares are such a great reminder of the green spaces of London and this square was actually originally named St. James Square after one such space in the city of London.

This square is named to honor the Telfair family, which includes a former Governor and Congressman. A very nice densely wooded property.

This is a pretty little park on the DOT Bus system route. Real close to many downtown restaurants. The surrounding buildings are worth seeing.

Savannah’s a beautiful city, especially the historic district. So what exactly happened around Telfair Square is beyond me. There are two buildings and a parking garage that are hideous and ruin the charm of the park. They appear to be constructed out of cheap gas...More
