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.

Laid out in 1847 and then dedicated to honor of William Pitt, the first Earl of Chatham with the Square and County named for him.

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.

We stayed on Chatham Square and this is a very nice out of the way square to sit and read a book.
