Warren Square in Savannah Georgia

Warren Square, on Habersham Street, gets its name from General Joseph Warren, a General who fought in the American Revolutionary War. General Warren died at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. Laid out in 1791, Warren Square was part of the first expansion of Savannah. The Ward that contains Warren Square is smaller than many other Wards. An interesting bit of information about Warren Ward; a number of the homes in the area of Warren Square were not built in the Square, but moved to Warren Square from elsewhere in the city.

I wish I could go on and on about how Warren Square has many things to see and do...but it doesn't. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful and peaceful Square. Some of the homes around Warren Square date back to the late 1700's. However, there isn't anything in the Square aside from a few benches and a few marvelous old growth Oak Trees.

One house worth checking out is at 24 Habersham House. This house, which has been restored quite nicely was originally built in 1749. Built in the Federal style of Architecture, this house is a stand out on Warren Square. 24 Habersham also had a famous house guest back in 1825. General Marquis de Lafayette stayed in the house for an evening when he visited Savannah.

If you need a quiet place to sit and relax, Warren Square is a good Square to do so.
