Greene Square is a great spot to sit on a bench in the park or bring a blanket for a picnic.

This neighborhood square, established in 1799, honors General Nathanael Greene, an American Revolutionary War hero. General Greene served as second in command to George Washington. After the war he lived about 15 miles outside of Savannah in his “Mulberry Grove” estate. There is also a monument in honor of General Greene in Johnson Square.

In the 19th century Green Square was the central hub for the African-American community. Several prominent buildings surrounded the square. This includes the Cunningham House, built on the northwest corner in 1810 by Henry Cunningham, a former slave and founding pastor of the Second African Baptist Church. - From
