The Squares of Bull Street in Historic Savannah

August 21, 2015 by Teresa Jacobson

Many times we’ve told a visitor who wants to get a good feel for Savannah to walk the squares of Bull Street.  Start at Bay Street and walk south down Bull Street to Forsyth Park.  The walk will take you through five of Savannah’s iconic squares.  The monuments and plaques in those squares tell stories of Savannah’s rich history as you stroll under moss and oaks past historic homes, architecture, shops, and restaurants.   The walk is less than 1 mile, but you could spend all day on Bull Street.

 

1)  Johnson Square is the oldest and largest square in Savannah and surrounded by some of the most magnificent buildings downtown.  City Hall, Christ Church Episcopal (Georgia’s first) Nathanael Greene monument  and several large banks.  The Nathanael Greene monument in Johnson Square honors one of America’s top Revolutionary War officers. Brigadier General Nathanael Greene (1742-1786) was second only to George Washington.  Green and his son are buried under the monument.  A bench in tribute to the legendary songwriter Johnny Mercer and a sundial in honor of Colonel William Bull who helped Oglethorpe layout and settle Savannah are also in the square.

 

2) Wright Square has two of the most impressive monuments in all of downtown.  A towering statue of William Washington Gordon and an enormous boulder over the burial site of Creek leader Tomichichi with his burial site.

 

3)  Chippewa Square is in the center of Savannah’s Historic District.  The Historic Savannah Theater, The First Baptist Church and the Moses Eastman House are around the square as well as restaurants and shops.  A monument to Savannah founder James Edward Oglethorpe towers over the center of the square and Forrest Gump sat on a bench in Chippewa Square talking about chocolates.

 

4) Madison Square has history and haunting’s and a great selection of restaurants and shops. Named for U.S. President James Madison, the monument of this square is an 1888 statue by Alexander Doyle memorializing Sgt. William Jasper, a soldier of courageous acts in the Siege of Savannah.  The Green-Meldrim House, where General Sherman stayed after taking Savannah, is on Madison Square next to St. John’s Episcopal Church.

 

5) At the center of Monterey Square  is statue of Casimir Pulaski, a Polish nobleman who came to Savannah seeking a better life and sacrificed his life in the Siege of Savannah in 1779.   The Mercer-Williams House, the setting for the murder in “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” is part of the reason Monterey Square is widely considered the most picturesque of all the squares of Bull Street in historic Savannah.

 

Forsyth Park is over 30 acres of the most beautiful urban green space in America and was named after Georgia Governor at the time of the expansion in 1851, John Forsyth.  Modeled after the fountains found in Place de la Concorde in Cuzco, Peru, the iconic Forsyth Fountain was added to the North end of the park in 1858.  Savannah’s Confederate Memorial Statue stand just south of the fountain and is meant to commemorate those volunteers who gave their lives fighting for the Confederacy.  There is also a Spanish-American War statue.  Forsyth Park is home to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday, a site for concerts during the Savannah Jazz Festival, and a host to free movies in the park every few months and the destination for all kinds of festivals and special events throughout the year.
