Lafayette Square

Abercorn St (Between Charlton st and Harris st)
Savannah, GA


  • Appropriately this square, named for a French war hero, is home to one of Savannah's French Second Empire houses - note the mansard room on the Hamilton-Turner
  • In 1846, the City jail was located here. Now, it is famous for the Andrew Low House which was built in 1849 on the West side of the square. See the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist too, breathtaking!
  • Designed in 1873 to honor the Marquis de Lafayette, who aided the Americans during the Revolutionary War. In the center sits a fountain dedicated by the Colonial Dames of America.
