Savannah

Chippewa Square

Laid out in 1815 and named in honor of American soldiers killed in the Battle of Chippawa during the War of 1812, Chippewa Square is located on Bull between Hull and Perry Streets. In the center of the square is a bronze statue of General James Oglethorpe founder of Georgia.

The statue was made by sculptor Daniel Chester French and unveiled in 1910. Famed as the backdrop for the "bench scene" in the movie Forrest Gump, the park remains one of the main "nightlife" squares in downtown historical Savannah. It’s a cute square park that lets you take a few deep breaths and enjoy the foliage and scenery. Easily one of the more favorite parks of Savannah it remains very popular.
