Where History Comes Alive
Orleans Square in Savannah was the first square to be ever be established! It was created 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 for winning 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 was built in 1842 and is one of Savannah’s historic landmarks. Visitors love seeing this beautiful example of Greek revival architecture.
