History and haunts pervade the scenic squares of Savannah's famous historic district. – Overview

Start with bustling Johnson Square, south of City Hall. By Oglethorpe Square sits "the most beautiful house in America," the Owen-Thomas House and Museum. The Isaiah Davenport House, on Columbia Square, sparked Savannah's restoration movement when its demolition loomed. Madison Square boasts the Green Meldrim House, Savannah's finest example of Gothic Revival architecture and one-time headquarters of General Sherman. Monterey Square is bordered by Temple Mickve Israel, and the Mercer House, made famous in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."
