One of the smaller squares of downtown Savannah, Washington Square was established in 1790 and named after our first president, George Washington. Nice little oasis in Savannah.

Took a stroll through the square and enjoyed the quietness as well as how peaceful it was. Beautiful small park well worth visiting.

Small square commemorating the visit of George Washington in 1791. Popular for weddings but I did not see any

This is a smaller square without the historical buildings surrounding it. Still neat to see and mark off the square tours. Had a calm and peaceful vibe.

This is another one of Savannah's many squares. It is smaller than some of the other squares, but thats what adds to its charms. Its not as packed with people as the other squares too. Recommended.
