Monterey Square was laid out in 1847 and has a monument (c. 1853) to General Casmir Pulaski, the Polish born General who died in 1779 during the siege of Savannah. It is ironic that there is no monument to him just 6 blocks away in Pulaski Square. All but 1 of the buildings on the square are original, with the incredible Mercer House (c. 1871) taking up an entire block. The story of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil revolves around the house. The square is filled with live oaks, Spanish Moss, azaleas, inviting walkways and beautiful landscaping.

Monterey Square is another beautiful park like square in the Historic District of Savannah Georgia. This square is tree lined and contains a memorial to Pulaski who was a war hero.

I visited Monterey Square several times during my visit to Savannah in June 2021. In the center of the square is a monument in honor of General Casmir Pulaski. The Mercer-Williams House and Temple Mickve are located at Monterey Square. Monterey Square is located not far from Forsyth Park. If you walk from Forsyth Park to City Hall along Bull Street, you will pass five excellent squares - Monterey Square, Madison Square, Chippewa Square, Wright Square and Johnson Square. This is my favorite walk in Savannah.

Lovely small square with gorgeous architecture all around. The square was laid out in 1847 to honor the 1846 Battle of Monterey during the Mexican American War “which a Savannah unit of the Irish Jasper Greens” but the monument in the middle of the square honors General Pulaski. The Congregation Mickve Israel Synagogue & the Mercer-Williams house flank the square with grand oaks and Spanish Moss framing the view. Just lovely.

This square close to Forsyth park is, in my opinion, the prettiest. There are a lot of photo opportunities with or without the house from the famous "Midnight in the garden of good and evil" in the background. And, like all squares, is very romantic with the beautiful flowers and the Spanish moss hanging from the live oaks. We found parking on the street which, in weekend, is free.

We were looking for a parking spot for our walk through Forsyth Park. We found a place on Gordon Street to park. This Square was very close to our original destination so we walked through this small square observing the history it commemorated. We also looked at the center piece of the park the large monument documenting the civil war history landmark. We were interested to see what this green space offered. It was worthy of our short side trip from Forsyth Park. Go see it if you are in the area.

One of the many beautiful squares that make the old city so special. Pretty landscaping, some places to sit, and splendid architecture around.

The squares, one after another are the true joy of walking around Savannah. Beautiful historic homes surround the square. Massive oak trees, Spanish moss and flowers abound. You will be amazed how peaceful it is.
