This square was laid out in 1790, but not named until the following year after George Washington's visit to Savannah.

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 square was a quiet one, our tour guide said because of that it its a popular wedding spot and that all of the squares can be reserved for weddings. It is a nice quiet stop.
