I was born around Crawford Square in 1952 @ 509 Mcdonough Street. I grew up around the Square. I played as a little girl on slides, swings, kick around and learned how to play basketball on that court. My mother builded a home on another part of town in 1970 that is when my family moved away. There was never a fence around the square when I was growing up. I have lived in Hawaii and Germany and I can truly say Crawford Square have a solid place in my heart. I will recommend anyone visiting Savannah to visit Crawford Square. However try to find out some history of the square to better understand the changes. Crawford Square was the only square founder by Oglethorpe that allowed blacks to live around. I hope that they never move the basketball court or playground. I live in Atlanta now however when I go home to Savannah I ride around the Sguare to reflect on the good times and when life was care free.
