Discover Orleans Square in Savannah

 

Where History Comes Alive

Orleans Square in Savannah was the first one to be established in 1815. Not only is it the oldest square in town, but it’s also the biggest one. It was named after General Andrew Jackson who won the New Orleans battle that same year. He later went on to become a U.S. president.

Located behind Savannah’s civic center and the Savannah College of Art & Design, Orleans Square is at the heart of the city’s history. In 1989, the German Memorial Fountain was installed at its center, celebrating the two major waves of German immigrants in the 18th and 19th centuries. You can also find the Harper-Fowlkes House that overlooks the square. This mansion built in 1842 is one of Savannah’s historic landmarks and is a beautiful example of Greek revival architecture.
