One of the features which makes Savannah such a unique
city is it's 24 historic squares, some of which were paced off by
Georgia's founder, General James Edward Oglethorpe himself.
The squares vary in size and personality, from the formal
fountain and monuments of the largest, Johnson, to the playgrounds of the
smallest, Crawford. Elbert, Ellis, and Liberty Squares are classified as
the "lost squares," destroyed due to development in the 1950's.
