Johnson Square

Johnson Square Review

The oldest of James Oglethorpe's original squares was laid out in 1733 and named for South Carolina Governor Robert Johnson. A monument marks the grave of Nathanael Greene, a hero of the Revolutionary War. The square has always been a popular gathering place: Savannahians came here to welcome President Monroe in 1819, to greet the Marquis de Lafayette in 1825, and to cheer for Georgia's secession in 1861.
