Fodor's 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. Locals call this Bank Square because of the plethora of nearby banks—perfect if you need an ATM.
