Established in 1847, Chatham Square features large trees draped in Spanish moss giving it that traditional southern charm. Beautiful.

This square was laid out in 1847. It is named for William Pitt (think Pittsburgh), the Earl of Chatham. Interestingly, William Pitt never visited Savannah. This square is densely populated with huge live oak trees.

So many of the Squares in Savannah that my husband and I saw on our own or on our Segway tour, are within a short walking distance of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist...worth a stop especially at Christmas. Chatham Square is one of...More

We found this square on a tour. I loved it simplicity and peaceful feeling, it is a great stop for the trees and Spanish moss.

There's no fountains or giant statues to be seen here. What you will view is the scenery. Giant miss covered trees and shade. It's a bit off the route of traffic and a surprise to find.

Many of the other Squares have sculptures and fountains to draw you in. This one doesn’t need them. The fern and moss covered trees, compete with their twisted branches, allow one to forget they’re in a big city and take visitors away into a storybook...More

This was one of my favorite squares in Savannah. It's more of a neighborhood square, and very quiet. Lushly treed and very shady. Not overrun with people. Fascinating architecture with the row houses surrounding it. Well worth it to stop buy and enjoy.

This is a lovely square with shade trees and nice to relax or walk through. Located at Barnard and Wayne Streets. The majority of the squares are centrally located so can walk and stroll through many which are a block or two apart.
