Columbia Square Tours

star-4

Columbia Square
Of all the squares in historic Savannah, Columbia Square is the most serene and devoid of swarms of crowds. Originally constructed in 1799, Columbia Square is punctuated today by the historic Wormsloe Fountain, which once graced the grounds of the Wormsloe Plantation—one of the earliest settlements in Georgia. It’s also the site of the immaculate Kehoe House that was built in 1893, and despite the fact that it’s rumored to be haunted, it thrives today as one of Savannah’s most luxurious bed and breakfasts. Also here on Columbia Square is the historic Davenport House, which was originally built in 1820 and saved in 1955. With the city threatening demolition, a group of women in downtown Savannah raised funds to purchase the house, and the move would lead to the eventual establishment of the Historic Savannah Foundation—a group that has helped to preserve and restore over 400 buildings downtown.

Practical Info

Columbia Square is in Savannah’s historic district between East State Street and East York Street. It’s a 10-minute walk from Savannah City Hall and the heart of downtown Savannah, and a comfortable place for relaxing in the shade or reading on one of the benches.

Address: Habersham Street, Savannah, Georgia 31401, USA
