All of the many squares in Savannah are unique. Johnson Square is the oldest and largest square. In the center is a monument to Nathanael Greene. Beautiful Christ Church is on one side of the square. A white marble bench in memory of the Savannah songwriter Johnny Mercer can be found in one corner. A beautiful place to sit and enjoy the gorgeous trees and surroundings.

Busy in a good way. Watch for the horse and carriages in the street as you walk. Nice for taking photos. The historic Christ Church and the Bank of America building are there.

This is one of the busier squares in town. This is because of its location. Its still a great place to sit down and rest for a few while you are touring Savannah.

Busy square, due to being a walk thru by tourists. And the area surrounding it is more businesses than homes. But big and a nice place to watch people!!!!
